The Saginaw Spirit’s Cole Perfetti and his non-profit organization, “Fetts’ Friends” announced a partnership with Saginaw restaurant Bringer Inn and Covenant HealthCare to provide meals to the Environmental Service and Supply Chain Employees at the Cooper Campus on Thursday, April 30, 2020.
Saginaw Spirit center Cole Perfetti: “I really wanted to do something to say thank you to the frontline workers at Covenant so they know how much the community appreciates them. We are all in this together and the great people of Covenant do a fantastic job of looking after our community.”
Spirit Team President and Managing Partner Craig Goslin: “This act of respect and kindness from Spirit player Cole Perfetti to the Covenant Environmental Service and Supply Chain employees, that are on the front line of the COVID-19 virus, is another illustration of his heart and character. Perfetti will be selected in the first round of the upcoming NHL draft not only for his hockey ability, but also because he is a terrific, high character person.”
Through cleaning and other infection prevention strategies, Environmental Services ensures that staff, visitors and Covenant’s patients are provided an extraordinarily clean, safe and aesthetically pleasing environment. Their staff includes nearly 180 team members who provide 24/7 services that include patient room cleaning, discharge cleaning, ancillary and clinical disinfection, linen, painting and other support to nursing and clinical staff.
Supply Chain Management is responsible for procuring and distributing (as applicable) all medical and surgical supplies, equipment, and services required for the everyday operations of Covenant HealthCare, consistent with Covenant HealthCare’s standards of care and in the most cost-effective manner. Their Supply Chain department is service oriented, with a constant effort to meet the needs of its customers; its overall goal is to maintain, at all times and under all conditions, a continuous supply of goods and services necessary to support patient care.
Aimme Minard, Corporate Relations Officer for Covenant HealthCare Foundation: “Our staff was surprised and honored to receive lunch from Cole Perfetti and the Saginaw Spirit Foundation. Often times, meals and treats are gifted to clinical staff because the community can easily identify them as our frontline employees caring for patients with COVID-19. Providing extraordinary care for our patients requires our facility to be properly cleaned and disinfected as well as stocking our units with the supplies they need. We are thrilled Cole and Saginaw Spirit Foundation chose to recognize Covenant HealthCare Environmental Service and Supply Chain employees as some of our hardworking, essential non-clinical employees and treat them to lunch.”
