COVID-19 Franciscan Preparedness & Response Fund
As the world responds to COVID-19, the Franciscan Health Foundation has created the Preparedness & Response Fund to support our response to this public health crisis.
Gifts to this fund will help address the urgent need for supplies and equipment in our healthcare facilities – items that will protect and care for our patients, staff and overall community. Our skilled teams have assessed and will continue to determine what is needed in this rapidly evolving situation. Your donation will have a direct impact.
Some examples of the equipment already identified include ventilators, oxygen concentrators, ultraviolet (UVC) robots that can assist with disinfecting efforts and medical supplies and equipment to outfit expanded patient care areas currently being prepared in advance of a patient surge.
As time passes and this current public health crisis fades, this fund will continue to provide preparedness and response assistance to natural disasters, emerging disease outbreaks or bioterrorist threats.
