Personal Protective Equipment Donations
Edward-Elmhurst Health plans to use medical grade and approved personal protective equipment (PPE) for front-line staff caring for patients at Edward Hospital and Elmhurst Hospital.
However, we are accepting all commercially and home-made PPE as emergency back-up supplies. In the event we do not need to use those supplies, we will work to make them available to other organizations in need.
Items most needed
- N95 masks
- Procedural/surgical masks
- Hand sanitizer
- Disinfectant wipes
- Nitrile gloves
- Isolation gowns
If individuals have new, unused equipment and would like to make a donation, visit the loading docks at EEH hospitals. Donations are accepted 9AM to 3PM Monday – Friday.
Edward Hospital, 801 S. Washington St., Naperville: The loading dock is located on Osler Drive west of the South Parking Garage. A campus map is available at: https://www.eehealth.org/patients-visitors/edward/getting-here/
