Cottage Health to Open Drop Off Center for Donations of Medical Supplies

Many individuals and organizations are reaching out to Cottage Health to offer support through donations of medical supplies. Cottage is extremely grateful to the organizations and local businesses who have provided supplies to help restock protective equipment for healthcare workers providing care at the hospitals.

Although work began early to manage and conserve supplies, the COVID-19 situation is evolving day by day. The global demand has overwhelmed the limited supplies being manufactured by some of the typical supply chain.

Based on market supply availability and projected usage, Cottage anticipates supply challenges for protective equipment including: medical goggles, face shields, protective masks and gowns.

Cottage Health will be accepting donations of medical supplies in case they are needed in coming weeks.

It is important that members of the public do not enter hospital lobbies to make supply donations. Hospitals are under a health officer order not to allow visitors.

Drop-Off Center Location and Schedule

Cottage Health will open a central drop-off center for donations at the parking area adjacent to:

Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital
351 South Patterson Ave.
Goleta, California
Map and Directions

The drop-off center will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays for an undetermined number of weeks as the local COVID-19 situation and need for supplies becomes clearer.

Supplies in original, unopened packaging are particularly sought.
