Saber Healthcare’s communities received face shields from a local medical device company.

Cleveland, Ohio – Saber Healthcare Group received a benevolent donation from NelDerm of over 7,000 face shields.

Kevin Nelson, Founder of NelDerm, shipped thousands of face shields to each of Saber Healthcare’s communities.

“Our whole mission is around innovation and making an impact in healthcare,” said Kevin Nelson, Founder of NelDerm. “We had this asset that those on the frontline needed. I felt so fortunate to be in this position to help them out. What we’ve been able to do has allowed us to expand our mission. We’ve got what people need, let’s pay it forward, and continue to support our community.”

When COVID-19 began spreading, NelDerm made the decision to begin producing face shields. They did this with the desire to help healthcare workers who were in need of personal protective equipment. All of the healthcare workers at Saber Healthcare are extremely grateful and appreciative of this donation.

“I want to thank Kevin Nelson, President of Nelson Innovations, LLC and Founder of NelDerm for his generous donation,” said Mike Demagall, Vice President of Population Health & Business Development. “His support to the communities he serves is commendable. A company that is willing to step up and help frontline caregivers during a pandemic is outstanding.”
