A Little Extra Support

We are now gratefully accepting donations and offers of community support.

At LCMC Health, we are humbled by the generosity of all who have inquired about donating medical supplies to support our staff and patients during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Many of you have asked “How can we support LCMC Health”?

There are areas of community need where your support can make a big difference.

Supplies

The LCMC Health Supply Chain team has worked diligently to procure necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our health care workers who are on the front lines. Our number one priority is their safety and that of our patients.

In an abundance of caution as COVID-19 spreads in our community, and with the increased global demand for supplies, LCMC Health is now accepting donations of needed supplies from the business and medical community (dentists, suppliers, etc.) who have available supplies.

Donations must be in unopened, original packaging, in quantities of 1,000 or greater and in accordance with approved hospital standards.

Requested donation categories include:

  • Masks (N95, surgical, procedure)
  • Disinfecting wipes, such as Clorox or Sani-cloth wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Face shields
  • Goggles and eye shields
  • Isolation or surgical gowns
  • CAPR/PAPR machines and disposables
  • Flocked swabs

To ensure that we can safely use any donated items or equipment, our safety and infection control experts need to review information about the items before they can be sent to our hospitals.

Please complete the fields to provide details about your donation and a member of our team will respond as soon as possible with next steps.
