SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — As hospitals across the country prepare for an increase in patient treatment of COVID-19, Dosher is accepting donations of personal protective equipment (PPE).

In a release Friday, the hospital says while supplies are adequate they expect that the need for PPE’s will rise, commensurate with the recorded number of COVID cases in our area.
