Across New York City and throughout the nation, we are in awe of doctors, nurses, and other essential staff who are working around the clock in our hospitals to care for patients and their families. It is because of our people, that we are strong, agile, and resilient.
They take care of us, help us take care of them. The word ‘heroism’ is not an overstatement when looking at the enormity of the sacrifices our frontline staff are making in the face of COVID-19. At this time it is paramount that we keep them well, safe, and close. And when they experience hardship in this crisis, it is crucial that we provide them and their families with the help they need to get back on their feet.
Join us in caring for the people who are putting themselves and their loved ones at risk to care for the loved ones of others. Your support will:
- Ensure a steady, continued supply of the necessary Personal Protective Equipment to keep clinical staff safe across our hospitals and clinics.
- Safely provide workers with nutritious food on the frontlines, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week—which is when they work.
- Aid employees experiencing financial difficulty in the face of the pandemic.
- Send vetted and safe child or elder care to the homes of individuals who must be at the hospital.
- Provide shelter near our hospitals to minimize transportation needs as well as risk to others in a household.
- Provide safe transportation where necessary.
- Offer mental health services now and in the future for those on the front lines who need, or will need, extra support.
A gift of any amount to support our faculty and staff at this time is profoundly meaningful, and will have a real impact on their work.
