Emergency Response

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Immediately, and ever since, our community stepped forward to help. Many gracious individuals, families, groups and businesses volunteered, contributed personal protective equipment (PPE), made donations, sent cards, worked on our front lines and so much more.

We are still humbled by the amazing outpouring of support and kindness.

Your gifts to our Emergency Relief Fund and the Covid Vaccine POD helped us to treat thousands of patients at our hospitals and throughout the community. We administered countless COVID-19 tests and vaccinated more than 155,000 of our citizens. Your efforts have saved lives, uplifted spirits and spread kindness.

We’ve come a long way since the beginning, and we couldn’t have done it without all of you. Thank you for your commitment to caring for our community throughout this pandemic and into the future!

Our emergency response fund continues to aid the efforts of our medical professionals, staff and volunteers. Some of the critical areas supported by this fund are medical supplies and equipment, education, resiliency training, patient support and other resources for physicians and nurses.

Gifts of any size to our Emergency Response Fund will still make a positive impact in our community and assist our team with resiliency.
