BTLC Receives Goggles for Docs

Feb 11, 2021 | NEWS, STAFF

Early in the pandemic, as hospitals grew concerned about the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE), members of the sport racing and ski/snowboarding communities joined forces to help safely equip medical staff treating patients with COVID-19.  Brook-TLC is honored to be a beneficiary of this generous partnership.

Bevo Forti, regarded as one of the most recognizable and respected men in motocross, in partnership with 100%®, the San Diego-based premium sports brand with a focus on performance eyewear and sports protection, created the Bevo Comfort™ PPE Goggle specially designed based on feedback from doctors, nurses and other health care workers. The goggles were built for all-day comfort and safety, eliminate goggle marks and can be worn over prescription eyeglasses.

Following the company’s partnership with Goggles for Docs, a non-profit organization formed to donate goggles to hospitals around the world, Brooks-TLC Hospital System, Inc. (BTLC) received 100 pairs of BEVO Comfort PPE Goggles for distribution to medical staff.  The case of PPE is valued at $1000.

BTLC physicians and advanced practice professionals can be seen sporting the new PPE throughout the hospital.  “The soft lightweight frame is comfortable even after a long 12-hour shift,” shares Amy Jo Burroughs, emergency room physician assistant.  “My colleagues and I feel incredibly honored that this generous partnership thought to protect our medical staff during these challenging times.”
