Chevron Donates $60k to Three Permian Basin Hospitals
Chevron has donated to three hospitals seeing the biggest increases in COVID-19 cases.
According to NewsWest 9, the $60,000 is being donated to Pecos County Memorial Hospital in Ft. Stockton, Reeves County Hospital in Pecos, and Ward Memorial Hospital in Monahans, all of those hospitals will receive $20,000 each.
“We hope this virus subsides, but in the meantime, we are grateful to be able to support these worthy hospitals by funding much needed resources and equipment,” said Mike Milliorn, Chevron Operations Superintendent.
The hospitals plan to use the donation to purchase much needed PPE and equipment they need to combat the Coronavirus like plasma freezers.
None of those three hospitals are in the first round of COVID-19 vaccine distribution but the funds provided by Chevron will also help them to get ready for distribution of the vaccine once they get their first shipment of vials.
“The past three weeks have definitely been hard on our team with the spike in COVID cases, but this donation from Chevron will assist us in continuing to better serve the community," said Leticia Rodriguez, CEO of Ward Memorial Hospital.
The donation is help when help is needed most during this time of spiking cases and before the COVID-19 vaccine is distributed and shot in the arms of everyone who wants to get the vaccine.
But until then, be diligent of wearing your mask and staying physically distant and staying out of big crowds to curb the spread till we can get the vaccine distributed to everyone that wants it.
