Cox Communications donated $135,100 in protective masks to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. The donation comes from the James M. Cox Foundation and includes 45,000 filtered and 25,000 surgical masks for COVID-19 emergency response efforts.
“COVID-19 remains a major concern in Nevada and particularly Clark County,” said Cox Business Vice President Derrick Hill. “This donation of masks is part of our ongoing effort to show our appreciation for the sacrifices and devotion our hospital partners continue to make to meet the healthcare needs of Southern Nevada.”
In March, Cox donated 10,000 protective shoe covers to UMC as part of early response efforts for the Nevada COVID 19 Task Force.
“As our team members work around the clock to save and improve the lives of patients amid this unprecedented public health crisis, we continue to find strength in the compassion and generosity of our community,” said UMC CEO Mason VanHouweling. “This significant donation of masks from Cox Communications supports UMC’s mission to provide the highest level of care, especially during our community’s greatest times of need.”
