 COVID-19 –Middlesex Hospital Alliance

Needs Your Help! Donations welcomed

Help us fight COVID-19. Donate your masks, gloves and other critical protective equipment.

Middlesex Hospital Alliance – Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital and Four Counties Health Services (Newbury) are looking for the items listed below for our hospitals to help augment our supplies to protect our health care workers during the COVID19 Pandemic.

To help nurses, doctors, and other front-line health professionals combat COVID-19, we need equipment to keep us and our patients safe.

We are asking the community to donate unused & unopened masks, gowns, gloves, and eye protection to those who need it most. Across Ontario, there is an impending shortage of this critical equipment in our hospitals and health-care settings.

Supplies

We are gratefully accepting:

  • N95 masks (CSA or NIOSH certified)
  • Disposable or Reusable Face Shield Visors and Neck Coverings
  • Surgical Masks Level 2 & 3
  • Tyvek/Tychem Suits
  • Disposable or reusable Full Face Shields
  • Isolation gowns
  • Nitrile gloves (S, M, L, XL)

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept previously used masks, gowns, gloves or goggles. Thank you for your generosity and support.
