As a service oriented organization, Kettering Health Network is dedicated to providing mission groups with the best medical equipment and supplies
possible. A huge part of this surplus is housed in our Missions Warehouse. Located in Miamisburg, Ohio, this facility is home to discarded supplies
that cannot be used in our hospitals, but can still be utilized in the mission setting. Even though items are discarded for a variety of reasons, not
all have run their course of usefulness. These outdated items are ideal for hospitals and clinics in third world countries. Below is a list of items
that we typically need and don't need as donations to the warehouse.
We DO need:
Boxes of sutures
Gloves of assorted sizes
Sterile surgical towels
Surgical instruments (any)
Needles still in packaging
Scrubs (sizes small, medium, and large)
Electrical equipment that may be outdated but still works and has all cords.
We DO NOT need:
Electrical equipment that is without cords or non-functioning.
Scrubs in poor condition or sizes bigger than extra large.
If you make a donation to the Missions Warehouse, please keep items organized. For more information about making a donation, please contactto
