Request for Assistance - Greater Akron Chamber

GAC Members –
Our hospitals need your help and/or your network.
We are beginning to hear from our hospitals and health care providers on their needs to help us provide critical care and to protect our health care workers as they support patients.
I have a request from one of our hospitals for a PORTABLE U/V LIGHT to help sterilize used PPE.  Looking for that equipment for loan, rent or purchase.  If your company or a company you work with can provide this please contact me directly at (216) 401-0935 or at
In addition, we are looking for companies to retool or refocus efforts on increasing personal protective equipment production.  Swabs for test kits, face shields, N95 masks, surgical masks, gloves, goggles and medical gowns.
There are several organizations including the Emergency Management Agency, MAGNET, and hospital procurement specialists helping with this conversion, including provision of specs, raw materials and consultation.
If you can help in this regard or want to learn more, let us know at and we will connect you with the right people.
Thanks for anything you can do to help,
Steve Millard | President and CEO |
