Temecula Valley Hospital currently has the medical supplies and personal protective equipment that are needed to
keep their employees and medical staff safe. The hospital tracks inventory several times per day and has put in place conservation measures to protect their resources in order to address the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the supply is limited and becoming scarce as they await additional supplies. At this point, the hospital would greatly appreciate local support from the community.

While medical supply and personal protective equipment donations are welcomed, Temecula Valley Hospital can
make payment arrangements to support local businesses that would incur a financial burden to donate.

Examples would include hotels, casinos, wineries, schools, restaurants, contractors, dental offices, chiropractors, child care centers, or others. If your business can help, please call 951-331-2536, and Temecula Valley Hospital will make arrangements for delivery or pick-up.
