Community Organizations Contribute Personal Protective Equipment to OMC

Community organizations in and surrounding West Plains have graciously contributed new personal protective equipment (PPE) to Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Personal protective equipment refers to protective gloves, face shields, goggles, facemasks and/or respirators or other equipment designed to protect the wearer from injury or the spread of infection or illness.

Currently, OMC is building an adequate supply of personal protective equipment and continues to receive more every day through approved suppliers, generous donations from individuals and organizations, as well as from our government.

In our current environment, the global supply chain continues to be uncertain so we will continue to seek additional resources to build our cache.

If you would like to donate new or unused personal protective equipment, contact the OMC Foundation at 417-853-5200.
