COVID-19 Supplies Needed!

PPE NEEDS FOR NORTHWEST ARKANSAS AREA MEDICAL PROVIDERS

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a critical national shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) desperately needed by health care providers to protect themselves.

UAMS is collecting donations of PPE that we will distribute to NWA hospitals wherever there is the greatest need. Medical supplies donated in NWA will be distributed in NWA.

If you or your organization has any of the PPE supplies listed below that you can donate, they will be greatly appreciated by NWA doctors, nurses and other hospital staff working on the front lines to care for critically ill patients.
