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 gift will provide aid to NYC Health + Hospitals staff who are facing financial hardship as a result of this pandemic. Your non-restricted donation can help us provide much needed services and support to our doctors, nurses, and other health care workers on the front line, which could include:

  1. Meals - There’s no time to take lunch and dinner breaks, so meals are delivered. $15 per meal
  2. Groceries - There’s no time to food shop in between long shifts, so grocery bags are prepared. $25 - $50 per bag
  3. Laundry Service - There’s no time to clean work clothes and scrubs, which must be washed and sanitized. $50 per load
  4. Scrubs - We are short on supply and need more. $38-$50 per FIGS Scrubs
  5. Taxi - Taking public transportation is unsafe and adds to the current long 14 to 18-hour shifts.

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.

For monetary donations $5,000 or greater, please contact our Comptroller’s Office directly by emailing James Linhart at James.Linhart@nychhc.org.
