Gundersen Health System seeks donations of medical equipment

  • 0

Gundersen Health System officials Wednesday began asking for donations of medical equipment as they prepare for a potential surge in patients because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hospitals across the nation have said they're running out of personal-protective equipment, but Gundersen officials describe its current stockpile as "adequate."

Here's a list of supplies Gundersen is accepting:

  • Face shields
  • Digital thermometers
  • Eye protection, such as safety glasses and goggles
  • Hand sanitizer that is at least 60 percent alcohol
  • Sanitizing wipes
  • Masks, including both N95 and surgical masks
  • Gloves
  • Gowns

For information about how to donate any these items, call the Gundersen Medical Foundation at 608-775-6600 or email gmf@gundersenhealth.org.

In addition, cash donations for purchasing equipment and supporting medical research, such as the COVID-19 test Gundersen's microbiology research lab recently developed, also are being accepted by the foundation.
