The CarePoint Health Foundation has set up a COVID-19 relief fund to support health care workers during this pandemic, helping employees cover food costs and other day-to-day expenses.
“Our CarePoint Health Foundation has established the COVID-19 RELIEF FUND. This fund is designated to relieve some of the strain our hospital employees are feeling during this pandemic while working directly with our patients each day,” wrote CPHF President Paulo Nevoso.
“This fund will help provide financial assistance and other means of support to the families of those loved ones whom the CarePoint family has lost as a result of COVID-19. This fund will also provide gifts in-kind allowing for donations of food and refreshments for frontline staff.”
The CarePoint owners, Vivek Garipalli, Jeff Mandler, and James Lawler, have committed to making a six-figure contribution to the relief fund, a hospital spokesman told HCV.
“I have worked in the community and we really felt the need to give back to the healthcare workers and establish the COVID 19 fund to help them,” Nevoso added.
“There’s no way any of us could get through this crisis without them. We hope past donors and others in the community will support this outstanding cause.”
