Sturdy Memorial Hospital, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA), has donated over $7,500 worth of medical supplies to Ukrainian healthcare providers.

Sturdy Memorial Hospital was the one of the two hospitals within the MHA network to respond to the ongoing need for medical supplies, and the first to actually get them shipped to Ukraine. This opportunity was made possible through a partnership with the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association, Yusen Logistics and the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER).

The devastation of this senseless war has had a tremendous impact on the ability for Ukrainian

healthcare providers to have the basic medical supplies needed to care for the sick and wounded,” said John Ackles, Director of Materials Management at Sturdy Memorial Hospital. “We are honored to lend a helping hand to support our healthcare colleagues in Ukraine and the victims of this tragedy.” In addition to these life-saving supplies, members of Sturdy’s board of managers and senior leadership contributed monetary donations to Doctors Without Borders to further help the people of Ukraine.
