Medical City McKinney is donating wheelchairs, walkers and other medical supplies to Mission Regan, a local nonprofit that collects surplus medical supplies and shares them with those in need both locally and globally.
The donation is a surplus of used medical equipment and supplies following the move of the hospital’s behavioral health and inpatient rehabilitation services from the Wysong campus to the hospital’s main campus last week.
We are thrilled that Mission Regan can utilize these items to help people locally and as part of its larger, global medical mission,” says Ernest C. Lynch, III, FACHE, CEO Medical City McKinney. “We believe giving back to our community is part of our mission to the care and improvement of human life.”
While Mission Regan works to build a medical clinic in Zambia, they have seen the requests for durable medical equipment like wheelchairs, shower chairs and walkers increase exponentially locally. Many of the requests come from residents who can no longer afford to purchase the needed equipment or who do not qualify for other programs.
“This donation will save lives,” said Josh Willis, co-founder and executive director of Mission Regan. “The number of items Medical City McKinney is donating to Mission Regan is allowing us to broaden our reach as to who we can help. It’s exciting–we can now help more people.”
