Piedmont Newnan Hospital, Newnan, Georgia recently received a large donation of supplies from local manufacturer Yamaha Motor Manufacturing of America to aid the hospital in protecting healthcare workers amidst the COVID-19 crisis. The story first broke in a news report in the Newnan Times-Herald on March 24.

As of that date, Yamaha had donated 380 respirators, 49,000 gloves, 325 Tyvek suits and 18,000 alcohol wipes. In announcing the donation, Bob Brown, Vice President of Finance and Operations Support at Yamaha Motor Manufacturing said, “The community of Newnan keeps Yamaha running and we are happy to be able to give back when we see an opportunity to help. We are proud of our employees who have stepped up to support our community and local hospital by donating personal protective equipment particularly in this time of need.”

Vicki Kaiser, Executive Director of Community Affairs, Oncology and Support Services at Piedmont Newnan responded, “We thank Yamaha for their support as we provide care to the community during this COVID-19 epidemic. The care we provide each day to our patients, especially during these times of crises, wouldn’t be possible without the support of our community.” She added, “These acts of kindness shown by our community partners helps encourage our team to push through as we strive to make a positive difference in every life we touch.”

“While our current supply of PPE is stable, we have put together a workgroup who is reviewing guidelines and will put together specifications for products which could help us expand our supply of protective equipment that is integral to keeping our providers safe should that become necessary,” Kaiser said.  For more information and to read the original news story, visit https://times-herald.com/news/2020/03/yamaha-donates-supplies-to-piedmont-amidst-covid-19.
