Coworkers and staff across Franciscan Health Fitness Centers have pulled together, with the support of Tonn and Blank Construction, to produce much needed PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) for Franciscan Health staff to use during this period of short supply.
Workstations were set up in both the Chesterton and Schererville Clubs with social distancing measures in place.
The first project, assembling approximately 7,000 face shields to be used by front-line caregivers, was accomplished in just four days. Tonn and Blank made prototypes and tutorials to train the health club staff on how to make the face shields. The shields have been distributed to various local Franciscan Health locations to aid the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, other clinicians and staff.
