Wellness & Response Fund

Wellness & Response Fund

Our healthcare team is doing heroic work. Our Wellness & Response Fund supports our staff, patients, and programs as we deal with the impact of the pandemic and Hurricane Ida.

Because the need is so critical and urgencies have changed, funding provides healthcare workers with additional safety equipment, stress and psychological support and expands patient outreach, programs, and services that impact some of the hardest hit in our community. Your tax-deductible support of our life-changing services is truly impactful!


Already, this year you’ve helped provide two UV disinfecting robots, PPE, thousands of staff meals and enrichment, and hundreds of patients with Medication Bridge financial assistance! You are helping lay a solid foundation of support for those in our care and continuing our nearly 300 year legacy of promoting health and wellness, caring for those marginalized by societal inequities… and standing tall during adversity.

For in-kind contributions or meal donations, please contact socfoundation@lcmchealth.org.
