Winchester Hospital Creates Healthcare Heroes Fund for COVID-19

Support Winchester Hospital’s response to the COVID-19 public health emergency

Your health is the top priority for our providers at Winchester Hospital, where clinicians and staff are working around the clock to do everything possible to protect the health and safety of patients, staff and community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

January 2021 Update:
The Healthcare Heroes Fund was created to support our nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, and staff who are fighting the pandemic on the front lines. Our team is working around the clock to identify and address areas of greatest need, such as critical PPE to keep our caregivers and patients safe, enhanced testing efforts, and wellness programs and resources to support staff during what continues to be an incredibly trying time for everyone on the front lines of healthcare.

Your gift to the Healthcare Heroes Fund will have an immediate impact on our ongoing crisis response efforts, and will enable our frontline staff to focus on delivering extraordinary patient care to our community.

January 2021 Update: Food and In-Kind Donations
In order to ensure staff safety and equitable support for our healthcare heroes throughout the institution, we ask that any community members seeking to support our frontline responders donate to our Healthcare Heroes Fund. We are not able to accept gifts of food or non-medical supplies, but the tremendous support we continue to receive through the Healthcare Heroes Fund enables us to swiftly respond to the areas of greatest need for our team-supporting everything from warm winter clothes for the staff in our outdoor testing tents to staff meals, wellness resources, and relief for critical care providers working around the clock through the surge. If you have specific supplies or food items you wish to donate, read this list of community organizations that are among those currently accepting donations.

A March 2020 note from our hospital President, Richard Weiner, MD
Dear friends,

It’s a sacred honor to be able to take care of people in their time of need. That’s what we do. It’s why we’ve always been here at Winchester Hospital. This is an unprecedented time.

Our dedicated staff and providers have been working tirelessly to deal with and prepare for this COVID-19 crisis. Now more than ever it’s important to show them our support and help them in this fight.

It’s in this spirit that I’ve created the Winchester Hospital Healthcare Heroes Fund. It is a vehicle for individuals to make donations that can be used in whichever way is most appropriate and effective. My wife Janice and I are making the initial contribution to get it started. I invite you to join in!

Thank you for all that you do. It enables us to fulfill our mission. To care. To heal. To excel. In support of our community.

With gratitude,

As always, all gifts to Winchester Hospital remain here, serving our community.
