PARAMUS, N.J. — On International Nurses Day, which was May 12, HealthyLine -- a Manhattan-based provider of far infrared heat therapy mats made with natural hot stones -- donated hundreds of personal protective equipment (PPE) to the nurses, doctors and other hospital staff at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center in Paramus on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We at HealthyLine are inspired by the men and women who are putting themselves at risk to take care of others physical, mental and emotional health during this crisis,” said Lindsay Griesbach, director of brand development and strategic partnerships at HealthyLine. “We are fortunate enough to be able to help the front-line healthcare workers and first responders in our city, as well as the healthcare providers at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center and Integrity House in New Jersey, who are providing life-saving services to our community during the COVID-19 outbreak by donating much-needed protective gear. As a brand that exists to promote health and well-being, we're committed to doing everything we can to help keep the heroes who are getting us through this crisis safe and healthy.”

During their trip to the Paramus facility last Tuesday -- the fourth-largest publicly-owned hospital in the nation with more than 1,070 beds -- HealthyLine representatives dropped of N95 makes, medical-grade gloves and other much-needed supplies as a thank-you for the hospital staff's selfless service. After their stop at Bergen New Bridge, they drove down to Newark to the Integrity House, one of the largest nonprofit providers of substance abuse disorder treatment in New Jersey, to deliver the same. Integrity House is committed to helping individuals and families through comprehensive, integrated addictions treatment and recovery support in a manner that brings about positive, long-term lifestyle change.

HealthyLine have been distributing PPE kits, which contained surgical face masks, N95 masks, medical-grade gloves, sanitizing wipes, mylar blankets and more, to front line workers outside their Manhattan showroom during New York City's nightly clap-out to health care workers. Their decision to expand its donation efforts came from the success of this distribution, and considered facilities in the neighboring Garden State, which is also hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic after the Big Apple, the epicenter of the virus. 

HealthyLine, which designs and produces more than 100 innovative models of medical heat therapy mats, vests and other products, donated a quantity of its so-called Pebble J vests to help front-line workers in the city ease stress, tension, and maintain overall wellness during these difficult times.
