Mask Donations for COVID

Anderson Healthcare has received multiple offers for volunteers to provide homemade masks for caregivers. At Anderson Healthcare we are proud to have a sufficient supply of personal protective equipment (PPE’s) for clinicians that allow us to follow the CDC guidelines to keep our staff and patients safe.

To continue our emergency preparedness efforts, we are allowing donations with the hope that the clinicians will not need to resort to this measure. However, these can be used to prevent the spread of germs for staff members outside of patient care and necessary visitors!

Many thanks to Maryville Baptist Church (Maryville, Illinois) who offered to be our drop off location!   A collection bin will be available inside the main entrance Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. beginning Monday, March 30th.

 Questions and concerns can be addressed to the following: Katie Ward, Director of Process Excellence (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
