What we are doing during COVID-19
First and foremost, we have been committed to continue providing the best service and support to our customers during this pandemic. Since the beginning of this challenging time, we have thrived to do so with the safety of our employees top of mind. The InnovMarine’s team has been working from home and meeting virtually weekly to ensure everyone’s well-being, safety and good spirit.
During these last weeks, in addition to keeping quite busy fulfilling our regular mandate, we have dedicated time to find ways we could help our Lévis (QC) community during this challenging time.
We are actively working at finding other ways we can help! Updates on more of our community initiatives will be posted on this page when completed.
Here are some activities we have undertaken:
A solution for patients to connect with their family
In this time of social distancing, our elderlies are unable to see their families and feel isolated which has a big impact on their spirits and therefore their health.
When we became aware of this challenge, we decided to purchase electronic tablets along with cell phones and sim cards due to insufficient connection in the establishment. We also configured an appointment scheduling website with videoconferencing to automate the scheduling of the appointments between the families and the patients. As of today, we have provided one electronic tablet with internet access to the Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis Hospital to allow patients to have virtual face time with their families.
We are in the process of providing additional electronic tablets to the Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis Hospital and other hospitals in the area.
Small relief for front line workers
Using a 3D printer and open-source design file from organization such as the National Institute of Health 3D Print Exchange COVID Collection website, we printed a little over fifty (50) surgical mask tension release bands for ear comfort to date which we donated to the staff of Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis and University Institute of Cardiology and Respirology of Quebec.
The band helps relieve some of the pressure on the ears for health workers wearing masks all day long.
$500 donation to Comptoir le Grenier
With this donation, Comptoir le Grenier, located in Lévis, QC, will be able to provide grocery baskets to many families and meals to homeless people.
If you have resources that would help your community in this unusual time, we challenge you to take one action towards making a difference! If you want more information on our initiatives, contact our marketing department via email.
