FOUNDATION FOR UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL ANNOUNCES $2.25+ MILLION DONATION TO SUPPORT COVID-19 RESPONSE

Today, the Foundation for University Hospital announced that an anonymous corporate donor has given $2,271,295 to support University Hospital’s COVID-19 response efforts. The anonymous donor worked with the Foundation as of earlier this week, and asked for a list of priorities to best help the hospital prepare for a potential growing surge of COVID-19 patients. Within hours of receiving that list, the funds were being wired to the Foundation.

Importantly, the funds will support additional resources in the University Hospital Emergency Department and Intensive Care Units. For months, the Hospital has been taking steps to prioritize existing resources, and engaging in contingency planning to accommodate potential COVID-19 surge scenarios. This donation will expand those capabilities further by providing additional resources, including ventilators, hospital beds, EMS equipment, pulse oximeters, telehealth capabilities, and sanitization resources.

“We are incredibly grateful for this benefactor’s willingness to step up during this critical time. I won’t mince words: this donation of critical resources will save lives,” said Shereef Elnahal,
President and CEO of University Hospital. “I am so proud of the work our team is doing at University Hospital. We are preparing for a large surge of COVID-19 patients, and every extra
resource will help us continue to protect lives.”
