Donations

Yale New Haven Hospital COVID-19 Support Funds

Yale New Haven Hospital has established two emergency funds which will provide critical, much needed support to the hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 PPE/Capital Provision Fund will be directed toward securing essential supplies, personal protection equipment (PPE) and medical equipment that are in scarce supply. The COVID-19 Support Fund has been established to help us take care of our dedicated and courageous caregivers. In additional to operational expenses, the fund will help support special initiatives such as Oasis Rooms; quiet, private areas where staff can find respite at times of overwhelming stress. Available resources include meditation and relaxation exercises, spiritual care and counseling services. The fund will also provide staff with meals and area accommodations so that our front line care providers do not have the additional worry of increased risk of exposure to their families and loved ones. These initiatives will help our clinical staff to sustain their resilience and continue to provide safe, high-quality care to our patients and community. As the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, specific demands may increase or change. The COVID-19 emergency funds are designed to provide assistance as needs are continually identified during this unprecedented crisis. Please make a gift today.

Bridgeport Hospital COVID-19 Fund

Bridgeport Hospital has established an emergency fund for critical support during the COVID-19 pandemic through the Emergency Preparedness Department. The fund will be used for patient care including testing, medication, medical supplies and staff support.

Greenwich Hospital COVID-19 Funds

The COVID-19 Support Funds will provide critical support to Greenwich Hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. Support will be used for capital expenses, including equipment and supplies. A second fund will be dedicated to support operational expenses.

Medical Equipment and Hand Sewn Mask Donations

Due to the overwhelming generosity and effort of our community in helping secure appropriate, medical-grade personal protective equipment, Yale New Haven Health has a sufficient stock of necessary items at this time. Thank you for making this possible! As a result of this effort, we are no longer accepting donations of medic­­al supplies, PPE, or hand-sewn face masks. If you have already created face masks for donation, we encourage you to donate them to organizations in your area where they may be most needed. We are most grateful for your support of Yale New Haven Health and your assistance in our COVID-19 response.
