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.
