Novant Health says it will accept supply donations

SALISBURY — In response to a growing number of businesses and community members reaching out to help, Novant Health says it will accept donations of medical supplies.

Novant Health, which operates Rowan Medical Center, says it’s accepting critical medical supplies that include masks, eye shields and disinfectants. Any vendor or supplier interested in donating supplies should email donatesupplies@NovantHealth.org, where they will be contacted about next steps.

“Novant Health is grateful for all of the businesses and individuals stepping up with offers of donations and supplies as we work to provide the lifesaving care our community needs,” said Mark Welch, senior vice president of supply chain at Novant Health. “Our supply chain team has worked diligently to ensure all team members have access to the supplies they need to provide remarkable care for our patients. We acknowledge there is a growing need for these critical supplies, and we plan to meet that need by increasing our inventory through donations from outside organizations.”

Novant Health said it currently has enough supplies, including personal protection equipment, to keep team members, patients and communities safe. But Novant Health said in a news release that it shares national concerns that supply shortages are threat facing health care systems across the country.
