COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

Double Your Support of the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

Thanks to the generosity of a private donor, all gifts made before June 30, 2020 to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will be fully matched up to $100,000!  Please help us secure this match and double the impact of your gift at this critical time. 

Your gift will help us:

  1. Accelerate acquisition of innovative, life-saving equipment.  Through the Emergency Response Fund, the hospital purchased three Lucas devices, which support hands free CPR in an era when emergency responders can no longer safely perform CPR on an untested patient.  The device was first used by our Emergency Department team on April 22 to save the life of a man having a heart attack.
  2. Create emotional support programs and services for our caregivers and providers, such as meetings that offer emotional support to our clinical teams and the purchase of iPads used to facilitate communication between patients in isolation and loved ones from afar.
  3. Advance community-wide testing with specific focus on areas of high risk.  In May, health officials from Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital and the UVa Health System teamed up to provide free COVID-19 tests in Charlottesville with a focus on communities of color.  More proactive testing and greater access to testing is needed to prevent hospitalization and save lives.

As always, 100% of your gift will directly support programs that benefit our local community.
