Like all Ontario hospitals and long-term care homes, Winchester District Memorial Hospital and Dundas Manor are working hard to keep patients, residents and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are requesting donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) from the community to help ensure we have adequate supplies over the coming weeks.

“At this time, we have specific needs that we are looking for,” notes Cholly Boland, CEO. “And we are hoping that individuals, businesses and health care providers in our region might be able to help.”

Currently the items being accepted are:

  • Procedure masks (PG4-1204 with ear-loops)
  • N95 masks
  • Nitrile gloves (with extended cuff)
  • Chemo Isolation Gowns

If you are able to donate any of the above items, please contact Chris Barkley at WDMH by emailing [email protected] to make arrangements.

All donations must be CSA-approved and be unused, unopened and unexpired. Currently, WDMH and Dundas Manor are unable to accept donations of related supplies, including latex products, hand-sewn masks or other items such as food. If you do not have any PPE to donate, but would still like to help, please consider making a gift to the WDMH Foundation’s General Equipment Fund. The government does not fund medical equipment purchases, so these gifts help our community now and in the future.

“Thank you to all those who have donated supplies to date including Tomlinson Group, Summers Physiotherapy and Dr. John Burke to name a few,” adds Cholly Boland. “We have a very supportive community and we appreciate everyone’s help.”
