Support Our Caregivers

Yale New Haven Health is grateful for the generosity and support of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are some ways you can show your support for caregivers on the front lines and contribute to donation efforts at our facilities.

Show Your Support on Social

Change your profile picture

covidThe simple act of changing your social medial profile picture can send a powerful message to healthcare providers on the front lines taking care of patients. Download the I Support Our Healthcare Workers icon for social media or print the Flyer and display it on your front door or window of your home/apartment. When you do, tag us in your photos and posts and we'll share with our staff so they know you're thinking of them.

COVID-19 Support Fund

The COVID-19 Support Fund will provide critical support to the hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic through our Emergency Preparedness Department. Support will be used for patient care including testing, medication, medical supplies and staff support. It will enable our clinical staff to sustain their resilience and continue to provide safe, high-quality care to our patients and community. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, needs may increase or change. The COVID-19 Support Fund is designed to provide assistance as needs continue to be identified during this crisis. Make a gift today!
