Team members representing Zimmer Biomet Ireland donate much needed Personal Protective Equipment to the Rehabilitation Unit of St Joseph’s Hospital, Ennis to help protect residents and frontline healthcare staff
Zimmer Biomet Ireland recently donated much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), to the Rehabilitation Unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Ennis. The Rehabilitation Unit provides a multi-disciplinary in-patient service to older people, who have experienced deterioration in function following recent illness or surgery. PPE is necessary to help protect residents and healthcare staff from COVID-19 and Zimmer Biomet is delighted to donate in light of national PPE shortages.
Claude Costelloe, General Manager of Zimmer Biomet’s Ireland manufacturing facilities said, “As one of Clare’s largest employers, we are delighted to make this donation to St Joseph’s, who do wonderful work in the local community. We share a common mission: to alleviate pain, restore mobility and improve the quality of life for patients. We are aware of the major challenges facing health care institutions in obtaining adequate PPE to protect their staff and patients at this time and are committed to doing whatever we can to support our communities. Our thanks go to all the healthcare professionals, who are treating patients, affected by COVID-19.”
