The company, which produces medical gases, including oxygen, for industry and hospitals, wanted to support and recognise the exceptional efforts of critical care staff.
Ben Jenkinson, Branch Manager, said: “The team at BOC Wolverhampton are proud to make a donation to the staff on the ICCU at New Cross Hospital to express our gratitude for their hard work and personal sacrifices helping the local community at this time.
“A large proportion of our staff and their families at BOC have personal experiences of the care, professionalism and dedication of the team in what are exceptionally difficult times, and we hope this small gesture will in some way show our appreciation for their efforts.”
