Proceeds benefit the COVID-19 Critical Needs Fund at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. MedStar Georgetown University Hospital established the COVID-19 Critical Needs Fund to ensure the hospital has the ability to meet patient needs and keep caregivers safe. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital prepared successfully for the already significant increase in the patient population and continues to be prepared, through the assistance of the fund, if any possible increase should occur as the nation begins to reopen.
The philanthropy supported fund helps MedStar Georgetown University Hospital procure additional personal protection equipment, increase retrofitted patient rooms with negative pressure equipment, expand care capacity through tent testing sites at hospitals and other locations, create drive-through and walk-up testing locations to increase accessibility for communities and prepare for other cost needs directly associated with the COVID-19 crisis.
