Medical Equipment Bank

The Medical Equipment Bank is sponsored by The Thurston – Mason Council on Aging: “Your Medical Equipment Bank is like a library; borrow the equipment you need and then return it when you no longer need it.”

The Burgman family donates the space for the Medical Equipment Bank in honor of the memory of Ann Burgman, co-owner of Woodlawn Funeral Home.


Woodlawn Funeral Home and the Medical Equipment Bank are two separate businesses. The employees at Woodlawn do not have information regarding the items available at the Medical Equipment Bank. Please do not bother the Woodlawn staff, as they are kind enough to donate the space.

Please don’t leave items outside. Woodlawn is nice enough to donate to the space for the Medical Equipment Bank; we need to be respectful. Let’s not make a mess.

Thank You,

The Board of Directors



Location and Hours:

The new location is: Sunshine Plaza – 3537 Martin Way, Olympia, WA,
at the 
corner of Lilly Rd and Martin Way 

Medical Equipment Banks

Medical Equipment Banks are like libraries; borrow the equipment you need and return it when done.

The Medical Equipment Bank will REOPEN, Thursday, November 2nd!

You must go to the Medical Equipment Bank’s location to see what items are currently available for loan. The Medical Equipment Bank’s phone line is not a messaging service and is for information only, unless you are seeking or donating a working hospital bed.

We recycle and Refurbish used Medical Equipment. Our volunteer staff collects used equipment and loan it out for free. We loan out items such as wheelchairs, portable commodes, transfer benches, shower benches, walkers, rollators, adult depends, canes,  and so much more to anyone who needs it. Medical supplies must remain in original packaging, or we cannot accept them – sorry.


Charge Any Electrical Equipment

Medical Equipment in Working Condition: Before donating them to the bank, please charge up electric wheelchairs, scooters, and testbeds.
The Medical Equipment Bank only accepts items in working condition and will test the electrical equipment before unloading. If they are not in working condition, we cannot accept them.


Sanitized Items

Please sanitize all items before donating them to the bank.
