Ukraine ribbon

Our hearts are with our colleagues of Ukrainian descent, those who have family and friends living in the region and all who are impacted by recent events.

During the second week of March, EEH donated approximately 88,800 gloves and 17,150 dust masks along with other medical supplies like splinter plaster and gauze packing to the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America (UMANA) in Illinois.

Edward Hospital and Elmhurst Hospital medical staff each donated $5,000 to the American Red Cross to support the Ukrainian Red Cross.

In addition to the four pallets and medical staff donations to the American Red Cross, our combined health system also made a financial contribution to Razom for Ukraine which translates into Together We Are Ukraine, an organization that provides medical supplies, humanitarian aid and supports volunteers on the ground.

Please view this memo for a list of relief organizations, including direct links for further information on how you can help.
