Major Health Partners appreciates the public's help and donations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
For anyone able, a list follows from MHP of items that would be valuable:
We need your empty hand sanitizer bottles. We are making our own hand sanitizer and need your empty containers in order to reuse.
Do you have items that you would like to donate? (hand sanitizer, masks, respirators, gloves, N95, bouffant caps, D-batteries, or gowns). If so, please contact Angela Gill (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Food Donations: Several community supporters have called to offer to donate food for our staff and physicians. Some are also doing it as a way to support those restaurants who are struggling to stay afloat while they are only open for carryout. We are extremely grateful for all the community support and selfless gestures. If you would like to find out more information, please contact Angela Gill (email@example.com).
Pharmacy: Our current medication supply is stable, however, our ability to replenish our supply is unknown at this time. Propofol is projected to be in shortage starting 4/19. We are researching our options and plans for an alternative solution or supplier.
Beds: We are receiving a donation of 7 inpatient beds from the Blue River Career Center.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): our current supply is stable as compared to our daily burn rate.
We have 10 emergency ventilators that run on D-batteries only. The batteries are required to be changed every 48 hours. Our engineering staff are currently exploring how to covert these devices from battery operated to electric.
