NYC Health + Hospitals COVID-19 Relief Efforts

COVID-19 is a pandemic that needs to be met with a similarly once-in-a-lifetime response. And we need your support.

NYC Health + Hospitals is the largest public health care system in the nation, serving more than one million New Yorkers annually in more than 70 patient care locations across the five boroughs. Our mission is to care for all regardless of ability to pay or immigration status.

In this COVID-19 crisis, our dedicated, compassionate, brave workforce of more than 42,000 employees are needed more than ever before. They are on the front lines caring for New Yorkers in Emergency Rooms, ICUs, community health centers and nursing homes. They are the Essential Workers and Health Care Heroes behind this epidemic.

Your non-restricted donation can help us provide these services and support to our doctors, nurses, and other health care workers on the front line:

  • Meals. There’s not time to take lunch and dinner breaks.
  • Prepackaged groceries to take home. There’s no time to food shop in between long shifts.
  • Hotel rooms. Our staff are taking care of COVID-19 patients and don’t want to go home and risk exposure to their families.
  • Laundry service. There’s not time to clean work clothes and scrubs.
  • Scrubs. We need more to ensure staff does not have to wear work clothes home from the hospital.

Our goal is to provide as many resources as possible, as quickly as possible, and prioritize the health and wellness of our essential workforce so they can continue to provide their best care for patients without exposing themselves or their families to undue infection risk.

We are grateful to the philanthropic leaders who support us in this uncertain time, as well as our community and elected leaders who are behind H+H every step of the way. And, of course, thank every individual for their support.
