Lambton College Donates Medical Equipment, Supplies to Bluewater Health to Support Covid-19 Efforts

SARNIA, March 27, 2020 – In a continued effort to assist with the evolving Covid-19 situation in the region, Lambton College has donated a large quantity of medical equipment and supplies to Bluewater Health.

On Thursday, March 26, the College arranged for the transfer of 30 beds, medical carts, tables and personal protective equipment (PPE) including much-needed gloves, gowns and N-95 masks to be relocated to hospital.

The equipment and supplies were previously housed in the College’s newly constructed NOVA Chemicals Health & Research Centre and utilized by students enrolled in various Health Sciences programs.

Silvana Macdonald, Associate Dean School of Health, Community Services & Creative Design orchestrated the donation on behalf of Lambton College.

“Our partnership with Bluewater Health is an important one, and as a College we were prepared to do whatever we could to support our local hospitals in their efforts to get us through the Covid-19 situation. We were aware of the need for medical supplies in the region, and are proud that we have the opportunity to help, particularly our medical professionals and other frontline staff as they work tirelessly to protect our community,” says Macdonald.

“We are extremely thankful to Lambton College for their continued partnership with Bluewater Health,” says Shannon Landry, Chief Nursing Executive, Bluewater Health. “This is a global pandemic and all around the world we see that cooperation and innovation are what’s needed to get through it. Lambton College and Bluewater Health have a long-standing history of supporting one another for the benefit of the community… this is another example and I am ever so grateful.”
