The Medical Equipment Recycling Program in Farrell has been in its new building at 707 Sharon-New Castle Road for almost a year now and the comments have been favorable. “The new MERP is so clean and neat,” said one comment card. Another claimed, “I had such a hard time getting into the old MERP because there was a long, steep ramp to the door and the parking was always terrible. The new location has parking right outside the door and the building is so easy to access!”
The new location boasts a large, clean and nicely decorated waiting area and three manned desks for helping people who need to borrow or return equipment. The cleaning and refurbishing now takes place behind closed doors, so the smells of cleaning chemicals and the sounds of the steaming machine are not a distraction to the employees and volunteers trying to help people who need our services. Finally, we have a large room for UV sterilization and a wash room that has a large roll-in cleaning area, plus the equipment washing machine. The workshop is being organized with shelving and drawers, labeled parts and a “needs repaired” area separate from the “ready to loan” area. The setup makes it easier for those working the front office to know what equipment is clean and ready to be loaned and what equipment still needs refurbished. It’s much easier to give directions to the new MERP, and because of its great location more people are happening upon it and obtaining the equipment they need to live more independently. Building upon over 20 years of success and partnerships, MERP has now loaned 28,456 pieces of medical equipment valued at nearly $3.5 million to over 21,000 people.
The UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation’s Annual Golf Masters Scramble was held on Monday, June 18, 2018 at the Avalon at Buhl Country Club. It was a great day for golf!

We are excited to announce the Farrell MERP is moving to a new location. In July, the MERP behind UPMC Horizon’s Farrell Campus will be moving to its new location on the corner of Sharon-New Castle Road in Farrell. If you have visited the Farrell MERP within the last few years, you noticed how crammed it was! “We simply outgrew the facility we were in about two years ago and had to start renting storage containers and storing equipment outside,” explains Kateri Linn, the MERP Coordinator.
The new building at 707 Sharon-New Castle Road in Farrell, PA, offers over 7,000 square feet of space, plenty of room for an appropriate cleaning area, workshop and intake area. Kateri explained, ‘The walls are finally going up and we can visualize how much space we are going to have for equipment repairs, cleaning and storage and it is exciting! We can’t wait to get moved in and start operating out of our new space!” Now, more than ever, we need the financial support of our community. Please consider a donation today!
