MCMH, along with seven other western Iowa Hospitals, send supplies to Ukraine
July 01, 2023
What started as a conversation about friends in Ukraine has turned into a massive effort to send urgently needed medical supplies to Ukraine. Retired Major Gen. Chris Hughes, Red Oak, spoke to Montgomery County Memorial Hospital and Clinics CEO Ron Kloewer about finding medical supply vendors to purchase supplies.
The request led to Kloewer asking other western Iowa hospitals to donate surplus supplies from their facilities. Seven other hospitals answered the call: Audubon County Memorial Hospital and Clinics, Crawford County Memorial Hospital, St. Anthony Regional Hospital, Cass Health, Myrtue Medical Center, Shenandoah Medical Center and Spencer Hospital.
Between the eight hospitals, Major Gen. (R) Hughes sent 12 pallets of supplies to Ukraine through the nonprofit Nova Ukraine.
