DDI donates face masks and latex gloves to local hospital to provide additional support during pandemic
DDI is supporting St. Clair Hospital in Scott Township by donating face masks and latex gloves to help control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
DDI, a global leadership consulting firm, donated 1,200 pleated ear loop face masks and 350 pairs of latex gloves to the hospital.
“Our healthcare workers are on the frontlines during this global pandemic, so we have to provide them as much support as we can during this tough time,” said William C. Byham, Ph.D, co-founder and Executive Chairman of DDI. “We are proud to be able to show our support for our local hospital and hope these masks and gloves help aid their ability to care for patients and prevent the spread of COVID-19”
As the novel coronavirus spread, it has disrupted and forced some businesses to pivot to work-from-home scenarios to comply with quarantines and shelter-at-home orders. It has also led to global shortages of medical supplies, including face masks, at hospitals and healthcare facilities.
“St. Clair Hospital is a community asset, and as part of this community, DDI is glad to do its part to help support our healthcare workers during this unprecedented time,” said Tacy Byham, Ph.D., chief executive officer of DDI. “Our hope is that these masks will really make a difference for everyone at the hospital and help stop the spread of the coronavirus.”
St. Clair Hospital is accepting boxes of unopened face masks and protective equipment, but not handmade face masks. Donations can be made by contacting Monica in the hospital’s Supply Chain and Materials Management Department at 412-942-1903.
