Update : PPE Project – President’s Message

June 4th, 2020|

What started as a local solution exactly 2 months ago to address the acute need for Doctors to obtain PPE has morphed into a national project!  Working with groups like ours, ActionPPE.org has coordinated and delivered 1.2 million units of PPE to Doctors and other care providers to over a dozen organizations to date!  New groups are joining weekly.  Great things are coming for CCMS as the founding group of this growing project. 

The last major shipment of PPE is on its way to Charleston!  We plan the last bulk distribution on Saturday June 13th.   WHY LAST?!  Because … we will soon be able to provide Direct shipping!  PPE products will be picked/packed/shipped from a central warehouse in the US and sent directly to our offices!   We plan to roll out the new system within the next two weeks. 

FOR NOW – KEEP CHECKING YOUR EMAIL AND THIS SITE DAILY AS JUNE 13TH APPROACHES

CCMS is TIRELESSLY working for you.

Update : PPE Project Shipment

May 28th, 2020|

Our next shipment has arrived in Dallas.  The supplies are waiting for clearance from Customs in preparation for shipping to Charleston.  Once we receive the shipment, we will confirm that all the supplies have been sent.

We will then allocate and plan the 3rd distribution.

This should be our final distribution before we transition to direct shipping from the warehouse to your doorstep!

Stay tuned for updated information.

Update : No distribution on Memorial Day weekend

May 22nd, 2020|

The 2nd PPE PROJECT Distribution last weekend was bigger than the first – and a little more complicated.  Due to delay in arrival to Charleston, some Face Shields, Type II masks and Gowns did not make it into the personalized box.  Some items also got mixed up in the packing/allocation process.  We are aware of the specific issues at each Site and with each order.  We are taking this long weekend to re-group and set the stage to address everything.  In the meantime, another shipment has arrived and we will combine and complete our orders.  You will be updated as we have information this coming week.

CCMS’ PPE PROJECT has grown organically with several states and medical organizations joining our platform.  We have coordinated nearly 1 million units of PPE for Doctors!  Remember, the site is ongoing, you can place orders to replace your burn-through rate of PPE.  We have added nitrile gloves and expect to offer hand sanitizer soon.

We are morphing into a true e-commerce site and will very soon announce the availability of DIRECT SHIPMENT to our offices!  We will keep you posted as we roll this out.  Many of the bumps along the road we’ve built will be leveled as we become more sophisticated.

As we all re-open our practices, it is comforting to know that we have PPE supplies to safely take care of our Staff, patients, families and ourselves.

I appreciate your support, patience and understanding – CCMS and our partners are working really hard for you.
