As early as March, individuals and businesses began reaching out to the BCH Foundation to see how they could help support local front-line healthcare workers.

  • 400 3-D Printed Plastic Face Shields
  • 2 LUCAS Emergency Chest Compression Devices
  • Multiple Catered Lunches for Patient Care Areas

They are concerned we will be understaffed when people get sick and they are concerned that they too could get sick.”

Rather than buckling under the emotional weight of COVID-19, the Beatrice Community Hospital staff has remained strong.
