RVH gets needed hospital beds, supplies

Georgian College loans hospital beds to Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre.

In an ongoing effort to heed the call from health-care partners across our communities, Georgian College has loaned 69 hospital beds to the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) in Barrie.

The beds, some of which were equipped with IV poles, were delivered this week.

Using the skills of its Research and Innovation team to manufacture 600 temporary face shields, the college has also donated the face shields and other critical supplies.

To help with the production of face shields, Georgian is looking for donations of raw materials, such as PET or PETg (a polyester film made from polyethylene terephthalate) that could be used to manufacture more face shields. If any companies would like to donate, they can reach out to [email protected]
