Bank of Hawaii announced today it will provide more than 1,200 face shields and masks, as well as make a $ 100,000 contribution to the Hawaii Healthcare Association.
More than 1,000 new N95 mass figures and nearly 200 face shields will be donated to Hawaii Health and the Queen’s Health System appropriately and appropriately distributed among its medical personnel.
“We are in an essential time of trying to slow the spread of COVID-19,” Bank of Hawaii President, President and CEO Peter Ho said. “The need for personal protective equipment for our healthcare professionals is great. Our first responders are on this pandemic line, and we are committed to doing their best to help them do their jobs efficiently and successfully. “
Hilton Raethel, president and CEO of the Hawaii Healthcare Association, said that “anything we can do to push this pandemic and apply the curve will lessen the impact on people in Hawaii. This very generous gift will help we are better prepared for the impact of this pandemic and protect the health care workers in the state and the patients they serve. “
Bank of Hawaii, the state’s second-largest bank, said for the health and well-being of its employees and customers that it recently installed plastic sneeze guards in its teller windows as an added layer of protection. The bank said it is also making sure customers lined them 6 feet apart in line with waiting areas, and has increased cleaning and putting out hand sanitizing solutions for its branches.
