DOYLESTOWN, PA – Local business owners and founders of Compression Essentials, Fred and Christina Swain, donated 100 pairs of compression socks to Doylestown Hospital on Monday, December 21, 2020. The donation was co-sponsored by Compression Essentials and the Scott Irvin Re/Max Home Selling Team of Doylestown.
“We wanted to give back to the community, starting with our own community,” said Swain on Monday. “My wife is a nurse so we know firsthand how important compression socks are to the medical field. With the pandemic going on it and nurses on their feet working long hours, it seemed like the perfect time.”
Swain opened Compression Essentials in August, offering a wide range of compression socks and accessories through online sales at www.compressionessentials.com. The donation was received outside the Cardiovascular and Critical Care Pavilion at Doylestown Hospital by LeAnn Warfel, RN, MSN, Director of Acute Care and Vascular Access Team, and Marcy Mikalaitis, RN, MSN, CCRN, Clinical Manager, CVICU/IVU, on behalf of the nursing staff. The socks will be distributed to nurses in multiple units this week.
“During these difficult and stressful times, it is wonderful to know that there are generous and caring individuals in the community who are thinking of the nurses here at Doylestown Hospital,” says Mikalaitis. “The compression socks are an especially appropriate gift as they will help alleviate the tired and sore legs and feet of many of our nurses! We thank all those who continue to remember the nursing staff at Doylestown Hospital. Remember, wear your mask, socially distance and wash your hands! Better days are on the way!”
Doylestown Health is deeply grateful for the extraordinary generosity and kindness of the community, which continues to find creative and meaningful ways to show support for the health system and the many associates and medical staff serving on the front lines during the pandemic.
