STLCC Donates Medical Supplies to BJC HealthCare

Ventilators headed for BJC

In an effort to help provide critical medical supplies in the area, St. Louis Community College donated personal protective equipment and other needs to BJC HealthCare.

College faculty and staff from the health sciences programs gathered and inventoried items such as respirators, N-95 masks, thermometers, disposable gowns, ventilators and other medical supplies. The donations were shipped to BJC for use by its network of hospitals.

Supplies headed to BJC hospital as Chancellor Pittman supervises“St. Louis Community College is committed to be present during this pandemic,” said Chancellor Jeff L. Pittman, Ph.D. “Although we’re in an uncertain space, we do have a strong sense of community, of togetherness. That’s the only way we’ll get through this.”

“BJC HealthCare is grateful to our communities for the ways they are rallying around our health care workers,” said Tim Miller, BJC warehouse supervisor. 

BJC has identified these products as high-priority needs:

  • FDA-approved surgical masks and respirators
  • N95 masks
  • Thermometers – infrared and forehead with disposable covers
  • Footwear covers
  • Disposable isolation gowns
  • Tyvek contamination suits
  • Face shields or industrial grinding shields with head harness and plastic shield
  • Goggles or eye protection
  • Hand sanitizer bottles or bulk
  • Sanitizing wipes
  • Nasopharyngeal swabs (nasal type, not Q-Tip-type cotton swabs)

At this time, BJC is not accepting open packages of items.
