UVA Health establishing drop-off site for PPE donations
A special donation center will be established at UVA Health to receive donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) – including masks, hand sanitizer, liquid hand soap and non-latex disposable gloves – from community members, local businesses and philanthropic groups.
To ensure the safety of those donating supplies, care providers and patients, UVA Health has developed a process to safely accept and distribute these generous donations, which will help UVA Health continue to maintain the PPE needed to care for COVID-19 patients from across the region.
“We are extremely grateful to the community for supporting our healthcare workers and each other during this unprecedented time,” said K. Craig Kent, MD, UVA’s executive vice president for health affairs. UVA especially wants to recognize the collaboration with and collective efforts of Equip Cville, the local organization working around the clock to collect and redistribute donated PPE.
UVA Health will continue to partner with the community to support local healthcare needs.
