Boeing delivers protective equipment for MUSC workers

Marlon Kimpson believes when the coronavirus has passed, part of the story to be told will be about South Carolina’s resilience and citizens banding together.

A prime example of that, the Democratic state senator from Charleston said, is Tuesday’s delivery of 150,000 face shields and eye goggles from China to the Medical University of South Carolina, facilitated by Boeing.

Along with Kimpson, Cole and Calhoun, the Boeing delivery was attended by Gov. Henry McMaster; MUSC Health CEO Dr. Patrick Cawley; U.S. Rep. Joe Cunningham, D-Charleston; U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson, R-Springdale; Rep. Ralph Norman, R-Rock Hill; and Republican U.S. Sen. Tim Scott.

Scott said it’s easy to write a check, as Boeing has sometimes done to support MUSC, but what’s more important is what a company does with the resources it has.

Both MUSC and Boeing, he said, have utilized their resources to the fullest extent.

“Protecting our frontline health care workers, who put their lives on the line every single day, is absolutely essential, and this will help MUSC do exactly that,” Scott said.
