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.”
