As COVID-19 increases in our region, so increases the individuals who are looking to Island Hospital for medical care. The recommended precautions in response to COVID-19 and the anticipated increased patient load will stretch Island Hospital staff and resources thin. That is why we have created the COVID-19 Emergency Fund. This fund will help sustain quality healthcare in your community through the purchasing of new equipment, critical medical supplies, and staff resources needed for a robust response to COVID-19.
Immediate Needs Include:
- Tele-ICU – $100,000
- Testing Cartridges – $30,000
- Telemedicine – $18,000
- Pharmaceutical & Supply Needs
- Expanded Staffing for the Emergency Department & ICU
Would you please provide an emergency gift to help expand the resources available to patients and staff in response to COVID-19?
COVID-19 is just one of the many reasons your community needs Island Hospital right now. Your gift today will provide instant relief, safety and resources for Island Hospital patients and staff during this unprecedented time.
Thank you to the several donors who have already contributed to the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. Because of you, eight ventilators have already been purchased to bolster Island Hospital’s ability to care for patients with respiratory illness, including the coronovirus. And through an imminent grant from Shell Puget Sound Refinery, specialized training for medical staff will take place. Your generosity will truly save lives. Thank you.
