Local Dealership Donates N95 Masks to Hospice Savannah, Inc.

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

Honda North America has donated much of its stocks of Personal Protective Equipment from its facilities, including N95 face masks, to support healthcare providers.
When Honda contacted  Ross Kaminsky, General Manager of  Southern Motors, he knew exactly where 150 masks should be delivered  As a former board member, and current Steward Center for Palliative Care board member, he knew that Hospice Savannah has faced PPE shortages since the COVD-19 pandemic began in March. Currently the hospice continues to see patients in their homes throughout Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty counties and has opened an isolation wing in its inpatient Hospice House ensuring COVID-positive patients receive the care they need and, most importantly, have a loved one with them at time of death.
Jamey Espina, VP of Development and Community Services, says, “Hospice Savannah is extremely grateful to the Kaminsky family for always remembering the needs of our patients and staff; N95 masks really help bring an increased level of safety. We are also thankful to many in our community who have sewn masks for our brave clinicians while they help our patients and their families.”
