TEAM Wireless Donates to OSF
Over the past year OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group experienced an increase in hospitalized patients as well as the need for additional means of virtual communication due to COVID-19. Early on in the pandemic, TEAM Wireless supported the increased need for communication with a donation of iPads to OSF HealthCare. Most recently, TEAM Wireless donated various mobile charging devices to further support and accommodate patients and their loved ones, near and far. Accepting the donation is Patti Dittrich (center), manager of Medical Surgical and Special Care Unit at OSF St. Francis, along with Madison Eazsol (left) and Justin Burford (right) both of TEAM Wireless.
We are so thankful for the superstars in our community, and take every opportunity possible to help.
