Covenant Health Returns the Favor

Back in March, as the COVID-19 crisis began to grow, the TWU nursing department donated needed medical supplies to Covenant Health


Now Covenant is returning the favor.


This week, Dr. Lisa Vesser, TWU Associate Dean of Allied Health, asked our friends at Covenant for a recommendation on non-contact thermometers. Mike Starnes, Director of Supply Chain Operations, responded not with a recommendation, but rather with a donation.


DonationOn Monday, Dr. Vesser (pictured on the right with Jayson Hill (left) and Starnes) went to Covenant and picked up the donated 15 no-contact thermometers and 10 stethoscopes for use across the TWU campus and instructional sites. These thermometers will be for administrative use to screen students, faculty and staff as they return to campus in the coming months.


“I’m not usually very emotional, but this brought a tear to my eye,” said Dr. Vesser of the donation. “I never imagined this kind of response, but I am so very thankful for our collaboration with Covenant. I know we produce some of the best nurses in town because of this partnership and it has been wonderful to collaborate this way, even in a difficult time.”
