Southeast Community College’s Health Sciences programs donated hundreds of medical supplies to local hospitals. Among the supplies are gloves, masks, thermometers, and lab coats. On Wednesday, SCC faculty and staff helped load trucks of the supplies to go to Bryan Health and CHI St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Lincoln. Others have already been delivered to medical facilities in Beatrice.

SCC is always seeking ways to help and support the communities within its 15-county area. Dean of Health Sciences, Jill Sand, said there is work that can be done to help ease the impact on those working in the medical field during this time.

“This donation will hopefully allow for more patients to be safely cared for and allow our colleagues and past graduates working in healthcare to protect themselves as they work in our fight against COVID-19,” said Sand. “We appreciate our community partnerships, and it is the least we can do to donate and support them.”
