Gary S. Horan (left), President and CEO of Trinitas Regional Medical Center, practices social distancing while accepting a $1,500 check from Pedro Cordero, MD.  

The donation, from Mano-a-Mano International Relief Organization, will purchase 1,000 urgently needed face shields that will help keep the Trinitas staff safe while treating COVID-19 patients.  

Dr. Cordero has assisted in the delivery of over 10,000 face shields and participated in the design of other protective gear, including several large, plexiglass “intubation boxes” that reduce the risk of infection during certain respiratory procedures on patients with COVID-19.
