Prime Inc. has a long history of giving back to the communities it serves, so when Robert and Lawana Low learned that CoxHealth in Springfield, Missouri, was in need of a dedicated unit to care for patients with COVID-19, they stepped up to help. In April, the Lows, on behalf of Prime, Inc., generously donated $700,000 toward the creation of a new COVID-19 ICU at Cox South hospital. The donation covered all construction costs associated with the ambitious project. In just two weeks, the unit went from just an idea to reality with a 51-bed, ward-style Intensive Care Ventilator Unit designed to care for a possible surge of COVID-related illnesses.
“We are in this together,” Robert says. “We will persevere and defeat this virus. We thank our Prime Associates—in-house and drivers—who are certainly doing their part to keep essential goods moving throughout the nation. We also want to thank front-line health care workers and let them know: We support you!”
