Supporting Penn Medicine Princeton Health During COVID-19

We have been heartened by the outpouring of requests from the community for a way to support the hospital as we care for, and protect, our patients and staff from the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Listed below are ways that you can support our work.
 

Emergency Response Fund

Support for the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will allow us to address today’s priorities related to the pandemic, while giving us the flexibility and resources to meet future needs as they evolve.

This Fund Will Help:

•  Expand our diagnostic and testing capacity
•  Purchase essential equipment and protective gear to meet the growing volume of COVID-19 positive patients
•  Expand our inpatient capacity to more than double the number of beds in our main hospital; and equip these new spaces with the necessary treatment and monitoring equipment
•  Expand tele-monitoring capabilities to enable off site clinicians to interact with bedside nurses and physicians to consult on patient care
•  Support COVID-19 patients who are not covered by health insurance
•  Provide financial assistance to hospital employees who are experiencing financial distress resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak with emergency childcare expenses, housing, or food
•  Provide our medical staff and employees with education, support and resources to help address mental health needs both during the pandemic and in the future

Healthcare Heroes Fund

Let our Heroes Hear You!

We’re sure you’ve heard and seen the applause from around the world: citizens clapping or banging pots and pans in the evening to thank the valiant Healthcare Heroes on the frontlines. Maybe where you live, they won’t hear you. Here’s a way to be heard: Treat them to dinner! Celebrate our Healthcare Heroes by sending them home with a freshly prepared meal for two at the end of their shift. 

Give what you can but, each $50 gift will pay for the two meals.  Our goal is to raise $150,000.  Once we've raised the funds, we will arrange with local restaurants to provide dinners at each shift to every Healthcare Hero.
