Care for the Caregivers

New Fund to Help UNM Hospital Health Care Workers Meet the COVID-19 Crisis

Many people in the community are looking for ways to help our physicians and staff who are working tirelessly to care for patients during the COVID-19 crisis.

Now, the University of New Mexico Foundation has launched the UNM Hospital Employee Crisis Relief Fund to receive philanthropic support for this purpose.

"We have created a giving page where people can directly support these efforts," says Anndee Wright Brown, senior director of development for the foundation. "This fund will be in effect through the current COVID 19 pandemic and can be made available during other future crisis events."

The fund will be used to help UNMH health care workers with additional costs -- such as food and lodging -- that accompany their long hours caring for hospitalized patients.
