Increasing PPE Supply at Humber River Hospital:
Right now, like most hospitals in Ontario, Humber River Hospital is accepting donations of much-needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This equipment keeps our front line workers safe as they care for patients. As COVID-19 progresses, we would be grateful to members of the community who are able to provide unused, unopened and unexpired PPE.
Urgently needed items we are currently accepting:
- Face Masks
- Gowns that tie in the back
- Sanitizer wipes
