Old Medical Equipment Finds New Life at Anoka Tech

When HealthPartners personnel packed up the old RiverWay Clinic on Second Avenue in Anoka, Minn., this past fall, they uncovered used medical materials and equipment that still had life in them. Eager to resuscitate and revitalize the found equipment, Bob Serreyn, HealthPartners’ operations manager of supply chain services, made sure the equipment made its way into classrooms at Anoka Technical College. In all, some $12,000 worth of blood pressure cuffs, swabs, syringes, stretchers, exam tables, cabinetry, sinks, and stools was given to the college this past December.
