CoxHealth announced Wednesday a donation of $200,000 designated to offset the hospital’s costs in buying supplies to fight COVID-19.
The Sunderland Foundation has given the donation to cover equipment costs for respiratory support and monitoring for patients who are fighting COVID-19.
“This unit is what allows CoxHealth to be ready today, and in the days to come, as we continue to face the challenges of the coronavirus on the health of our local community,” Lisa Alexander, president of the CoxHealth Foundation, said in a statement. “We are grateful beyond words for organizations like the Sunderland Foundation that embrace our local hospital and keep us strong and prepared in times of crisis.”
The Sunderland Foundation has been a previous supporter of CoxHealth’s growth, including the West Tower, renovation of Cox College, and the Monett hospital.
“The Sunderland Foundation is pleased to provide financial assistance to CoxHealth to enhance local COVID-19 treatment capabilities,” says Randy Vance, president and chief operating officer of the Sunderland Foundation. “Our thanks and best wishes go to the entire organization during these unprecedented times.”
