Canadian company Endy has donated brand new mattresses to the call room at Abbotsford Regional Hospital (ARH).
Rajen Ruparell, executive chairman and co-founder of Endy, said the company heard from an ARH doctor that the facility was in need of new mattresses for front-line workers across their ICU, OR, ER and OBGYN departments.
He said the company provided enough mattresses for a total call-room overhaul.
Dr. Michael Newton, ARH site medical director, thanked Endy for their donation.
“Especially through these unprecedented times, the importance of a restful and comfortable sleep is extremely important. We are looking forward with anticipation to testing these new mattresses out,” he said.
Ruparell said the decision to donate the mattresses “wasn’t just about being Canadian; it was about being human.”
“We thought, these are the people risking their lives each and every day, the doctors and nurses who continuously fight for us on the front lines. If we can provide even a moment of comfort and rest for these miracle workers between patients, we think it’s well worth it,” he said.
To date, Endy has donated more than 10,000 mattresses to charitable causes.
