TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Tallahassee Community College has helped another hospital in the Big Bend during the COVID-19 crises by donating medical equipment and supplies.

The university donated more than 2,000 medical items to Capital Regional Medical Center (CRMC).

The medical items included surgical and face masks, disposable lab coats, shoe covers, surgical gowns and gloves.

“TCC is honored to have donated these medical items to the brave workers of the CRMC,” said Madeline Pumariega, Executive Vice President and Provost. “As the community’s college, we are proud to support our healthcare partners serving in the frontlines of the Coronavirus.”

The TCC Ghazvini Center for Healthcare Education did an inventory review and found that additional medical equipment could be offered to first responders.

“Our division is delighted to donate lab supplies that are used to train TCC students in the natural sciences to our local healthcare providers at CRMC,” Anthony Jones, Dean for Division of Science and Mathematics. “We truly hope that our act of kindness will lead to more patients being cared for by CRMC professionals, with the protective personal equipment needed to safely do their jobs.”

Last month, TCC also donated medical gear to Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare and Leon County EMS.
