As COVID-19 continues to grow and spread at an alarming rate in the United States, so does the lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) for health care workers on the front lines. Qosmedix and its parent company of Qosina took actions to help their neighboring communities.
Last week, the company donated much-needed supplies to local hospitals and healthcare systems. The donation included:
Masks and gloves to Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, New York;
Shoe covers and gloves to Brookdale Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York;
Shoe covers and gloves to Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC) in East Meadow, New York.
The donated goods to Brookdale and NUMC will be further distributed within their healthcare systems to a total of five hospital centers and three nursing homes.
“Qosina’s donation of masks and gloves comes at a much-needed time here at Elmhurst Hospital,” said Dr. Gwen Raphan. “We are so appreciative to receive these items so our staff can have a bit more peace of mind."
Sari Sternschein, Vice President of Marketing for Qosmedix added, “The fight against COVID-19 is an unprecedented crisis. The least we could do was donate supplies to help protect healthcare workers who are risking their lives being on the front lines each and every day.”
