#GMVEMSC: GDAHA Message for GMVEMSC Regarding PPE

Dear EMS Partners,


With the COVID-19 pandemic increasing our use of PPE, GDAHA hospitals have been asked by Fire and EMS about resupplying the surgical masks that are used on a patient. 


The hospitals of Premier Health, Kettering Health Network, and Dayton Children’s Hospital will resupply the masks used on patients on a one-to-one basis.  The hospitals will not be responsible for resupplying the crews with PPE they used for personal protection on the run. 


The one-to-one exchange will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and will remain in effect as long as the hospital supplies allow for this exchange.


Please know that the need for PPE is a concern for GDAHA, our hospitals, and all partners on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. We are working diligently with your regional organizations to bring additional supplies into the region to support and protect everyone.


Thank you,





President & CEO

Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association
