The Valero Foundation and McKee Refinery have awarded a $12,000 grant to the Moore County Health Foundation (MCHF) to purchase two EKG machines for use by the  Moore County Hospital District.

MCHF said that during the past few months, the existing EKG machine usage was extremely higher than normal due to the need of COVID-19 and suspected COVID-19 patients requiring extensive EKG monitoring. The existing machines had worn out, and Valero offered funds to replace them.

Kathie Fuston, Executive Director of Moore County Health Foundation, said, “The Moore County Health Foundation and the Moore County Hospital District healthcare team appreciates the continued generosity of the Valero McKee team and the Valero Foundation. Valero has continued to make a difference in our community, and they make a big contribution to improving the quality of life for residents in our area.”
