SB360 DONATES KN95 MASKS TO BETH ISRAEL LAHEY HEALTH
BOSTON, Massachusetts – April 10, 2020 – As new cases of the coronavirus are reported each day, the need for personal protective equipment for medical personnel and first responders is becoming increasingly critical. As a response to the crisis, SB360 has donated 22,000 FDA-approved KN95 respirator masks to Beth Israel Lahey Health, one of Massachusetts’ renowned health systems on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. The donation will bring personal protective equipment to where it is needed in any of the 13 hospitals within the Beth Israel Lahey Health system. The masks will provide a direct and immediate impact for caregivers and hospital staff working tirelessly to care for our community.
During these challenging and trying times, SB360 harnessed the strength of long-standing manufacturing relationships to procure the KN95 masks. “We wanted to give back to our community by tapping into the resources we have,” said Aaron Miller, Executive Vice President of SB360. “We know that there has been a strain on global supply chains that providers rely on for important medical supplies. We had a resource and we saw a way to help.”
