As Southeastern North Carolina continues to prepare for an expected increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, the healthcare community is asking area businesses and health providers to consider donating any personal protective equipment they will not be using in the immediate future.
NHRMC and Pender Memorial have been working to secure the supplies needed to keep staff and providers protected while caring for potentially infectious patients. More than 25,000 PPE items have already been donated by local businesses, setting an example for others to follow.
NHRMC is working with New Hanover County to collect and distribute the protective gear that is donated at the NHRMC Business Center:
