Confluence Health


Mar 24, 2020

The willingness to respond to community needs, especially in times of crisis, has always been at the heart of our North Central Washington communities. The challenges presented by the growing COVID-19 epidemic have highlighted another essential way you can help our front-line medical staff treat our friends and neighbors safely.

Keeping colleagues, patients, community members, and families safe is critical during these unprecedented times. We at Confluence Health are overwhelmed with gratitude.

Due to the international shortages of critical PPE caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Confluence Health Foundation is now accepting donations of the following items:

    Latex free gloves

    Procedural masks

    Surgical masks

    N95 respirators and N95 filters

    Other respirators P100, PAPR and PAPR supplies / parts

    Face shields

    Splash shields

    Gowns

    Hand sanitizer

    Disinfecting wipes

Please bring donated items in the original, unopened packaging. We are willing to accept homemade PPE as well!

If you have the skills and ability, Confluence Health would also gratefully receive handmade PPE (especially masks) that will directly support the long-term care facilities in our communities.  We anticipate increasing numbers of community members infected with COVID-19, who will require care.

Please see this  link for additional details and approved sewing patterns.

Responding to community needs, especially in times of crisis, has always been at the heart of the healing care by our family of organizations.

 

Through your partnership, together, we can make a difference.
