“The support from R Baby could not have come at a more critical time. One of the greatest concerns from the frontlines of this pandemic has always been how we keep ourselves and our patients safe, especially during times when our PPE stockpiles ran dangerously low. R Baby provided us with the tools we needed to create our own protective equipment in innovative and novel ways. This kept countless frontline workers and the patients we cared for safe and protected so we could keep fighting this disease. For that, we are all eternally grateful.”

— Dr. Jason Hill
