First-Light USA donates hand sanitizer to OSF’s Pandemic Health Worker Program

Posted

MENDOTA - First-Light USA, a manufacturer of portable, tactical lighting solutions, has announced the delivery of thousands of bottles of hand sanitizer to OSF HealthCare.

In response to immediate needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the First-Light team turned its attention from its typical production toward filling a vital need for the new Pandemic Health Worker Program (PHWP) offered by OSF HealthCare.

“We appreciate First-Light's foresight and putting innovation into action, helping us provide care to those in our communities dealing with COVID-19 by donating much-needed hand sanitizer for clients of the Pandemic Health Worker Program,” said John Vozenilek, MD, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer for Innovation and Digital Health at OSF HealthCare.

At the forefront of developing and creating innovative ways to deliver patient care, OSF HealthCare recently introduced the PHWP. Through a contract with the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, the PHWP is designed to protect the well-being of the general public during the COVID pandemic.

Clients enrolled in the program are assigned a Pandemic Health Worker who will deliver a care package that includes hand sanitizer, thermometer, educational materials, a guide book and a tablet - depending on what a client already has at home.

“OSF HealthCare, through OSF Innovation, is helping to lead the charge against the COVID-19 pandemic in Illinois. With our unique access to an FDA-registered production facility, we leapt at the chance to be a small part of this immense effort,” said Jeremy Ross, CEO and Founder of First-Light USA.
