How You Can Help
Our community has shown tremendous and moving support for our healthcare workers and emergency responders over the past year as COVID-19 tightened its hold on our state. Yale New Haven Hospital moved quickly, rising to the challenge in countless ways and we are still working to deliver the expert, high quality care our community expects – safely and with compassion. We continue to test and treat patients with COVID-19 and your support is still crucial to our response efforts.
COVID-19 Support Funds
As we reflect on the past year and ponder the enormous challenges and losses that were experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are beyond grateful to our frontline health care heroes, essential workers in our communities, and you. Your support has helped make our response to COVID-19 possible. Three emergency funds continue to provide critical and much needed support to Yale New Haven Hospital during the ongoing pandemic.
- The COVID-19 PPE/Capital Provision Fund will secure essential supplies, personal protection equipment (PPE) and medical equipment that are in scarce supply.
- The COVID-19 Support Fund will continue to help care for 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.
- The Post COVID-19 Treatment RECOVERY Program Fund is a newly established fund to treat patients who suffer from lingering and often debilitating symptoms from COVID-19 that prevent them from working, exercising – sometimes even from simply breathing easily. The fund will be used to expand staff, study patients’ experiences, and conduct research to find answers and new therapies.
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.

Medical Supplies, Hand Sewn Masks and Food
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 also appreciative of the many donations of food for our staff. At this time, we are no longer able to accept food donations.
We are most grateful for your support of Yale New Haven Health and your assistance in our COVID-19 response.
