Calling on all Life Sciences & Healthcare Organizations to Donate Supplies to Fight COVID-19
As the leading life sciences and healthcare organizations in the world, it’s incumbent upon all of us to do everything we can to address the COVID-19 pandemic and aid the first responders and healthcare providers who are putting their health on the line every day to help patients. To that end, we’re launching the Massachusetts Life Sciences Emergency SupplyHub to help coordinate efforts to try and bring additional supplies and resources to our state’s healthcare institutions so they can continue to test and treat patients with COVID-19.
We’re asking every life sciences and healthcare organization to consider how they may be able to help, specifically in donating personal protection equipment (PPE), lab, testing, or diagnostics supplies, to combat COVID-19.
The State has set up a portal for anyone seeking to donate supplies.
This information will be shared directly with the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) who are coordinating all donations and working directly with the Department of Public Health to triage all requests for supplies.
In addition, if you are looking to sell supplies to the state, please fill out this separate form. Those who are interested in adapting your business to produce PPE, please reach out to the Manufacturing Emergency Response Team.
Lastly, if you are a healthcare facility seeking supplies, please follow the guidance issued by the state.
Please join us in helping to ensure healthcare institutions across the Commonwealth have what they need to continue this fight.
