Commerce launches Emergency Supply Collaborative
To continue to serve front-line medical personnel, the S.C. COVID-19 Emergency Supply Collaborative launched earlier this week by the S.C. Department of Commerce.
This platform works to recruit community partners that have the ability to quickly source or produce much-needed medical supplies to support South Carolina's COVID-19 response. The Emergency Supply Collaborative, an initiative of the S.C. Manufacturing Extension Partnership, S.C. Hospital Association, SCBIO and S.C. Commerce, is a valuable resource for manufacturers, suppliers and other organizations to connect with the needs of the medical community.
On the newly-launched website, healthcare providers can also list specific needs, devices and supplies that are in most critical demand.
S.C. Commerce is seeking community partners with the ability to quickly source and/or make needed medical supplies (e.g. face shields, gowns, ventilators, masks, and other products as needed) to support the State of South Carolina's COVID-19 response. S.C. Commerce is also seeking community partners with the capability to test and certify such medical supplies toward the COVID-19 response. S.C. Commerce is especially seeking medical providers that have medical supply needs.
