Support the Response to COVID-19

Patient Needs Fund

At this time, there is a critical need for additional funds for the patient needs program to help those being affected by COVID-19. This fund provides financial assistance for urgent needs during a health-related crisis and can include immediate assistance such as gas cards, groceries, medications, utilities payments, and more.

Staff and Patient Lodging Fund

Hospitals around the country are in need of accommodations for frontline medical staff who work in direct contact with COVID-19 patients. During this uncertain time, bringing peace of mind to healthcare workers can mean providing alternative lodging options for staff who choose to self-isolate and social distance themselves from their loved ones while working in patient care. 

Munson Healthcare has responded to this need by expanding the lodging options available to families of patients and employees. We still have a need to provide free or reduced cost lodging for families whose loved ones are receiving care including cancer treatments, those undergoing surgeries, or who have babies in the NICU. Additionally, employees working in high-risk areas such as Emergency Departments, Intensive Care Units, and COVID-19 Units have access to local lodging at area hotels at no cost to the employee. 

As we continue to monitor the situation, Munson Healthcare estimates a cost of $75,000 to cover housing needs for employees and patient families over the next 6 months.
