COMMACK, NY (April 15, 2020 ) — Gemini Pharmaceuticals, a family-owned manufacturer of dietary supplements and OTC pharmaceuticals based on Long Island, has worked with Mask A Hero NY to donate over 7000 N-95 style respirator masks to hospitals through Long Island and New York City.
New York State is currently epicenter of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) at the area hospitals is critically low. In partnering with Mask A Hero NY, Gemini Pharmaceuticals has donated over 7000 N95 respirator masks to the New York medical community. This donation will help ensure that personnel requiring immediate PPE equipment replenishment will have access to quality items, and that they can continue their work without compromising the health of themselves, their patients or their families.
Additional N-95 masks were sent to personnel at Buffalo General Medical Center, located in Buffalo, New York.
These donations do not put the workers at Gemini Pharmaceuticals, or its products, at risk as Gemini has sufficient supplies of FDA approved PPE for their staff. Mike Finamore, CEO of Gemini Pharmaceuticals, said, “We are all part of this greater community, and as an Essential Industry Partner Gemini recognizes the challenges the medical community is facing every day. Each company and each person must do whatever they can to help others in this time of need, and we hope this donation will do a small part in assisting our local healthcare system.”
Dr. Emily Levin, co-founder of Mask A Hero NY, stated “We are very thankful to Gemini for this generous donation, and Mask A Hero NY will immediately work within our network to distribute these badly-needed N95 respirators to local hospitals and their staff within the next few days.”
