Atrium Health Thanks Central Piedmont

Eugene Woods, president and CEO of Atrium Health, recently thanked Central Piedmont – in a special email communication to Dr. D – for donating 18,000 gloves, 470 N95 masks, 150 level 3 mask shields, 200 surgical gowns, and 200 bouffant caps for its staff’s use.

Said Woods, “On behalf of our more than 70,000 teammates at Atrium Health, I’d like to say ‘thank you’ for your incredible donation. Please know your generosity is making a world of difference, and we certainly would not be where we are today without your overwhelming support. We are so grateful for our neighboring institutions like Central Piedmont Community College.  Not only are you deeply rooted in educating generations of our future leaders and innovators, you have also played a transformative role in pushing our community forward and stepping up to help serve our most vulnerable in their greatest time of need. Please know your generosity is making a world of a difference, and we certainly would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for your overwhelming support.”

Central Piedmont Health Programs Donate 30,000 Pairs of Gloves to Atrium and Novant Health

Central Piedmont Health Professions and Human Services, donated more than 30,000 pairs of gloves, 670 N95 masks, 350 isolation gowns, 250 level 3 masks and 400 bouffant caps to Atrium Health and Novant Health.

All of the college’s health programs and Environmental Health and Safety department offered their supplies to meet the community needs. Although faculty from all areas were willing to come in and help pack, we limited the faculty involved for safety reasons. Here are a few of our Central Piedmont heroes:

  • Karen Summers, Interim Dean Health Professions and Human Services
  • Eileen Clark, Dental Hygiene
  • Cathy Flores, Medical Assisting
  • Mel Angelisanti, Surgical Technology

Thank you to all of the staff involved for supporting the community during such challenging times.

Community Service Project: 58 Strong in 100 Counties

Is sewing one of your talents? Or are you looking for a new hobby? We are participating in the North Carolina Community College System Community Service Project and we want to help our medical community with the shortage of medical masks.

Atrium Health has provided some simple guidelines to sew masks. Check out this short tutorial.  Please send an email to communitybenefit@atriumhealth.org to arrange delivery. Masks will be cleaned and distributed. Extras will go to other organizations.

Anyone that makes 50 masks will get a “58 Strong” NCCCS t-shirt. You’ll need to upload pictures and or video of your masks to this FORM to receive your t-shirt. Deadline to complete masks is June 1. Your photos and videos will be shown at the NCCCS Conference in October. Contact Jesse.Bennett@cpcc.edu for more information.
