Make a difference: Help us respond to COVID-19 (coronavirus)
Many members of our community have asked how they can help Community Medical Centers provide necessary and critical medical support to our patients as we deal with COVID-19 (coronavirus) here in the Central Valley.
Our hospitals and staff are well prepared to handle the developing pandemic and to serve the healthcare needs of the Central Valley. But your help will make a difference during this unprecedented time.
As Community Medical Centers addresses this disease, our frontline medical staff and support staff are working long hours and extra shifts to ensure we’re prepared to provide for everyone. We’re expanding our supply lines and working with local, state and federal authorities to access needed supplies to test and care for our most vulnerable. Of course, this comes with unforeseen costs. Each day brings new challenges, as well as unique opportunities.
With your help, we will raise money to fight this disease and support the greatest needs of our hospitals and care teams who are standing united to fight for you and your families during this time.
We’ll be able to purchase vital supplies such as hundreds of new life-saving ventilators, lab equipment to conduct in-house COVID-19 (coronavirus) tests, patient monitoring equipment and personal protective equipment such as masks, among other needs.
How Your Gift Will Help
The following funding opportunities will accelerate and strengthen our efforts to help patients and staff who are impacted by this crisis.
This fund gives Community Medical Centers the means to develop and strengthen new and existing programs and services that will assist the hospitals above and beyond day-to-day operations and what’s currently possible within the budget. These contributions offer the most flexibility to address unforeseen costs and needs of the hospitals as they arise, including replacement or purchase of medical equipment and technology.
Help accelerate and strengthen our efforts to respond to COVID-19 and any future crisis. The increase of incremental costs during crisis mode is substantial. These funds will assure the hospital has additional resources needed to treat and care for every patient who comes through our doors.
It’s critical we sustain day-to-day operations during a crisis — from expanding and supporting triage and testing efforts to ensuring that emergency rooms and first responders have the resources needed to provide the best possible care.
We've set up tents near the emergency rooms at Community Regional Medical Center and Clovis Community Medical Center to ensure we keep other patients safe as we care for our community members afflicted with COVID-19 (coronavirus). This fund is dedicated to support these essential needs.
Income relief for impacted employees
Income relief for employees unable to work due to sickness related to COVID-19 (coronavirus)
Assistance with childcare programs
Our nurses and hospital staff deliver the best in care to patients and their families every day. Your gift will extend aid to Community Medical Centers’ staff who are impacted as a result of the pandemic.
As our physicians, nurses and other front-line staff are focused on providing our patients and community the care they need, our environmental service crews, security teams and patient care assistants are bolstering the hospitals' ability to deliver safe, quality care.
Whether it's needed now, as a result of the extraordinary effects of COVID-19, or later, these and additional programs provide Community employees with necessary relief and peace-of-mind when they may need it most.
