Hunterdon Medical Center has received an outpouring support from the sewing community in Hunterdon County.  In an effort to increase PPE supplies, Hunterdon Medical Center created an employee sewing group as well.  Ten employees at Hunterdon Medical Center have temporarily stopped their day jobs to focus their efforts on sewing.  Between the Hunterdon County sewing community and the employee sewing group, 940 isolation gowns were created, 480 caps have been sewn and 3,100 masks have been made.  The employee sewers are currently working on masks for all the children that attend Hunterdon Healthcare’s Bright Tomorrows Child Care Center.

The hospital is currently accepting masks from the community to be used for patients being discharged from the hospital, home health clients and employees in non-clinical areas of the hospital.  The masks must be made with 100 percent cotton fabric and can be dropped off at the main entrance of the hospital. For more information or questions, please email: Karen Dipaola, Director of Volunteer Services at Kdipaola@hhsnj.org.
