The contribution will assist with the purchase of patient ventilators, renting a mobile CT unit, providing personal protective equipment for staff, supporting the COVID-19 Drive-By Clinic, setting up telehealth services and providing emergency staffing to keep the Incline hospital operational, according to a press release.
“The entire Incline Village Community Hospital team is beyond grateful for Dave and Cheryl Duffield’s generosity during this unprecedented time for Incline Village and for the hospital,” said a hospital spokesperson in the release. “This charitable contribution will help dramatically increase IVCH’s and Tahoe Forest Health System’s ability to address our community’s needs during this pandemic.
