Together, we can do so much more than we could do on our own. Now, more than ever, we are seeing our community band together to prepare for, manage, and stay ahead of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tri-State Memorial Hospital & Medical Campus' number one priority is the safety of our patients, providers, employees, and our community. Any donation you provide will go to the most emergent need of the hospital.
We are all in this together.
Forgiveness for the Front Lines
Hospital workers across the country are on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tri-State Memorial Hospital is joining many facilities across the country to fight for our hospital heroes.
An American Hospital Association report estimates a total four-month financial impact of $202.6 billion in losses for America's hospitals and health systems, or an average of $50.7 billion per month.
Up to 100 hospitals could close before the end of the year due to financial impacts of COVID-19.
Loan forgiveness for our hospitals is essential for America's recovery. Visit DefendOurHospitals.org to send your member of Congress an email to call for relief to our hospitals.
Medical Supply Donation
Donations of products to protect our frontline providers and the patients we care for is very much appreciated. Our need for personal protective equipment evolves on a daily basis as we respond to the COVID-19 crisis
All donations must be unused and unopened, as they need to meet infection control approval standards. For your safety and the safety of our health care staff, we cannot accept any in-person drop-offs at our emergency department, health screening stations, or clinics. All donations will need dropped off at Tri-State Memorial Hospital Receiving. If you are interested in donating items, please fill out our in-kind donation form.
If you have any additional questions regarding the donation of medical supplies, please email email@example.com.
Let's 'Face' it Together
Thanks to an overwhelming response from our community, many individuals have volunteered to sew fabric masks for us. These masks will be used to help protect our staff and patients during this crisis. A Facebook Group titled "Let's Face It Together" has been created by Elizabeth Black, MD, for people in our community who are interested in participating in sewing mask donations. Tri-State has purchased supplies and have kits available for pickup at Tri-State Memorial Hospital Receiving. We are currently welcoming face mask donations from the community as well
We are asking that volunteers use the design specifications from this video provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the following step by step mask guide. The information provides the pattern we are using (Deaconess Pattern on YouTube) with a step by step video instructions to guide you if needed. We are asking that the fabric used is 100% cotton (pillowcase type fabric) that is washable.
For those who have currently created masks that they would like to donate, please drop them off at Tri-State Memorial Hospital Receiving. They are open M-F between 7 AM – 4 PM and closed on weekends.
