ROME, N.Y. – Rome Memorial Hospital has received several donations from local businesses and organizations to help provide employees with necessary personal protective equipment and other supplies.

Donations have come in from Harbor Freight Tools, Lowes and Big Apple Music of New Hartford, as well as Mohawk Valley Community College and the Jervis Public Library, as well as many individuals and providers from the community.

“The support we have received through this pandemic has been incredible,” said Materials Management Director Larry Giardino. “We appreciate every donation, large and small and will be using them to supplement our existing supplies. We’re also grateful to the county for securing resources to protect our staff.”

Giardino says the hospital is monitoring the usage rate of all supplies to and prepare for future needs.

“We are learning more and more about COVID-19 every day, and taking every step to ensure that we have the resources to protect our staff, patients, residents and the community,” he said. “We are constantly assessing our supplies and monitoring the market to be prepared for a possible surge if and when it occurs.”

The hospital is still accepting the following materials to supplement its supplies:

• Disposable face masks (isolation, procedural, surgical, n95 masks)
• Medical gowns
• Face shields/goggles
• Latex-free gloves

Small businesses, dental offices, tattoo studios, manufacturers or construction firms that want to donate PPE can contact the hospital by calling 315-338-7222.

The hospital asks that donors provide a note with their name, contact information and quantity of items. All items must be new.
