Arnprior Regional Health accepting donated medical supplies from the community

March 26, 2020 – Arnprior Regional Health (ARH) is now accepting donated medical supplies from local businesses and the broader community in order to ensure the Hospital and Grove Nursing Home have a longer-term supply during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We currently have sufficient supply to provide safe care; however, we are asking the community to donate available supplies to help ensure we meet the increased future demand as the pandemic continues,” said Eric Hanna, President and CEO, ARH.

ARH is now accepting donations of unopened, unexpired medical supplies.

Items include:

  • Surgical masks
  • N95 masks
  • Latex-free gloves
  • Non-permeable protective gowns (disposable or reusable)
  • Protective eyewear (face shield, safety googles)
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Hand sanitizer (alcohol content of 70% concentration or higher)
  • Battery-operated medical thermometers
  • Alcohol wipes (70% isopropyl)

“Our community has already begun reaching out to us with generous donations of medical supplies and other items,” said Hanna. “We are incredibly thankful for the overwhelming community support during this challenging time.”
