From the Coast Mountain College Collection to Northern Health

Ready to Roll!  Coast Mountain College has delivered a range of
Medical Supplies to Northern Health this week

Last week we made note that Coast Mountain College was taking an inventory of their stock to see what items they have on hand that could be delivered towards the COVID-19 response for Northern Health.

Today, the college which has campus locations around the Northwest relayed some of their bounty highlighting the volume of medical related gear that they have now delivered to Northern Health facilities across the region.

In a post to their daily Update page today, Coast Mountain College provide a glimpse into the success of the supplies drive at campus locations.

Colin Elliot, the Director of Applied Research, Libraries and Emergency Technologies provide some thoughts on the combined effort:

“It was really exciting to work with staff from all over our region, all connected through the common goal of supporting the COVID-19 response in the Northern Health region. It was really rewarding making the deliveries and knowing we can help in some small way.”

More than 20 employees across the region worked in tandem to coordinate the supplies for delivery.

In all, Coast Mountain College was able to provide more than 15,000 gloves, 300 masks and 200 sets of scrubs and isolation gowns. This was in addition to eye protection and hand sanitizer.

Coast Mountain College President and CEO Justin Kohlman, observed as to how the college response is an evolving project during this time.

“This is one way that Coast Mountain College can help support the communities we serve in this ever-evolving situation. Just like when our staff pulled together to move the institution toward virtual service delivery, they rallied to identify and collect these supplies. We’re just so proud of the dedication and drive of our employees.”
