Georgia native Jason Aldean has donated $200,000 to Navicent Health in his hometown of Macon, Georgia.
Navicent outlined four specific ways his donation will help them out:
- To purchase COVID-19 testing equipment for Navicent Health’s laboratory, allowing testing to be performed in-house and test results to be returned much quicker.
- To purchase virtual technology that will allow Navicent Health’s intensive care physicians to assist community hospitals in rural areas. Through the technology, intensivists at Navicent Health can monitor patients remotely and consult with the care teams at each individual hospital.
- To purchase personal protective equipment (PPE), including but not limited to N95 masks, gowns, gloves and goggles.
- To support Feed the Fight, a Navicent Health initiative that supports locally owned restaurants that have closed due to COVID-19 by purchasing meals from restaurants to feed frontline healthcare workers.
