Council roundup: New medical loan closet coming soon to Wellington

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow —  The Wellington City Council has voted to allow space at the south annex of the former SRMC hospital building to establish a medical equipment loan closet for the community.

Dr. Tamara McCue addressed the council requesting a room formerly used for hospice therapy to set up a place in which people can donate old medical equipment for others to use. Think of it as a library. But instead of books, people can check out medical equipment for a borrowed amount of time.

“There are a lot of things that Medicare insurance won’t cover as far as medical equipment is concerned,” McCue said.

McCue said that medical equipment could be on hand at the closet for people to use at no charge.
