Orleans Community Health in Medina calls for donations from community during supply shortage due to COVID-19

CEO of MMH Mark Cye makes community request:

“At this time, we are facing one of the largest healthcare epidemics we have seen in our lifetime.  COVID-19 has reached our community and the world around us.  As you may have heard medical supplies are critically low in all healthcare facilities around the country.  There have been mandates to manufacture more supplies in a timely fashion, but the fear is they will not arrive in time for the need within our community.

“Medina Memorial Hospital is at a dangerously low supply of critical protective gear and we do not want to put our employees at risk.  To be as prepared as we possibly can we are asking all local businesses and organizations to please consider donating any extra supplies listed below that you may have on hand.

  • Blankets
  • Nursing Scrubs
  • Lab Coats
  • Latex-Free gloves
  • Face masks
  • Cots
  • Air mattresses
  • Shoe covers (disposable or rubber will work)
  • Rain Poncho’s
  • Large trash bags (39-gallon size)
  • Disposable cover-ups (likely found in paint rooms, test areas, kitchen’s, etc.)

“All drop off donations will be accepted from 1pm-4pm Monday through Friday.  Please bring them to the delivery door on the north side of MMH.  Ring the doorbell and someone will assist you.

“We ask that you please notify Heather Smith at 798-8426 or Sue Geiger at 798-8916 if your desire to drop off a donation before coming.”
