While most people think of Goodwill as a network of retail stores or as an employment and training center in the Greater Cincinnati area, most are unaware that the organization also offers a Medical Equipment Loaner program. For more than fifteen years, Ohio Valley Goodwill has offered a medical equipment program through it’s Health Services department under the direction of RN Abby Bradburn. Community members can contact Goodwill about needed medical equipment for a nominal $5.00 rental fee and can use the donated items for as long as they are needed. Generous community support provides the Goodwill Loaner program with a diverse array of medical equipment including wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes and other adaptive equipment.

“It’s our pleasure to be able to provide needed medical equipment to members of the Greater Cincinnati community, “said Abby Bradburn, RN. “As representatives of an organization that serves thousands of people with disabilities and as health service professionals, the Medical Equipment Loaner program reflects part of our mission of service.” Each year, Ohio Valley Goodwill serves more than 3,500 individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans and helps almost one thousand to get jobs. As one of the largest employment and training centers in Southwest Ohio for over 100 years, Goodwill is well aware of the needs of the Greater Cincinnati community and is pleased to offer the Medical Equipment Loaner program.

To find out more about the Goodwill Medical Equipment Loaner program, please call (513) 771-4800, Monday-Friday, 8 am- 4 pm. Please note that the office is unavailable between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm each day due to treatment schedules. Goodwill is grateful to the Greater Cincinnati community for their generous donations which makes this service possible as well as to its Health Services team for their coordination of the critical loaner program.
