TEXAS, USA — Chevron has donated a total of $60,000 to West Texas hospitals that are dealing with a surge in COVID-19 cases.
Pecos County Memorial Hospital, Reeves County Hospital and Ward Memorial Hospital will all receive $20,000.
“We hope this virus subsides, but in the meantime, we are grateful to be able to support these worthy hospitals by funding much needed resources and equipment,” stated Mike Milliorn, Chevron operations superintendent
The hospitals plan to use the donations to purchase more PPE as well as equipment related to the coronavirus vaccine such as plasma freezers.
While none of these three hospitals are in the first wave of vaccine distribution, these funds will help them be ready to go once they do receive their first shipment.
“The past three weeks have definitely been hard on our team with the spike in COVID cases, but this donation from Chevron will assist us in continuing to better serve the community," said Leticia Rodriguez, CEO of Ward Memorial Hospital.
