The communities we serve are being hit the hardest by COVID-19. Environmental and economic influences have compounded for generations, leaving our communities at a higher risk, exacerbating the virus’s impact.
To effectively combat this virus, keep our patients and staff safe, and support our frontline healthcare workers, Saint Anthony Hospital could use your help. We need personal protective equipment (PPE) as well as vital medical equipment.
HERE ARE SOME WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT US, OUR DOCTORS, NURSES, CLINICAL TEAMS, AND OUR PATIENTS DURING THIS PANDEMIC:
We have established a COVID-19 RELIEF FUND, which will be used to equip our medical team with the tools needed to administer quality care to our patients. Our medical staff has been working tirelessly and compassionately on the front line of this crisis.
We are also accepting supply donations. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential in keeping our health care workers safe, as well as our patients. We are currently accepting the following items:
- Clinical equipment – ICU beds, respiratory ventilators, monitors, pulse oximeters, capnography, and IV pumps.
- Masks – Both N95 and procedural masks will be accepted. They must be new and unused.
- Handmade masks – Hand sewn masks will be accepted as long as they follow these instructions: https://www.joann.com/make-to-give-response/
