Atlantic General Hospital donates supplies to volunteer combat medic groups in war-torn country
Berlin, Md. – Having been the beneficiary of an outpouring of community support – donated food for front line workers, hand sanitizer and other supplies, hand-made masks – over the long COVID-19 pandemic, Atlantic General Hospital and Health System is now paying it forward.
On March 22, 2022, Atlantic General’s Materials Management team helped load $30,000 worth of medical supplies onto a Schell Brothers truck for transport. The donated cases of isolation gowns and coveralls, gloves, masks, body bags, face shields and hydrogen peroxide wipes are bound for Ukraine and the efforts of local relief groups providing first aid, home medical care, and evacuation of wounded Ukrainian soldiers and civilians.
The effort is being organized by Ryan Nellans, an Atlantic General Hospital Foundation member and owner of the Berlin Sconer bakery, who reached out to the hospital last week requesting support. The supplies are bound for Wilmington, Del., where they will be air-shipped to Ukraine.
