COVID-19 Urgent Appeal
Thanks to the response and dedication of many hospital workers willing to put themselves (and their families) at increased risk, Edward has been able to provide increased treatment capacity for patients with COVID-19 and meet the needs of our community.
Increased expenses for Personal Protective Equipment and testing supplies, however, combined with lost revenues from forced cancellation of non-emergency visits, resulted in unavoidable system-wide losses. This has forced the system to cut pay and benefits for staff and physicians, mandate use of Paid Time-Off hours and furlough staff, in order to meet difficult budget targets.
While replacing total pandemic losses isn’t feasible, we are making every effort to partner with our community to help ease the burden on the hospital, staff and physicians. Our hope is to preserve the philanthropic support the Foundation has traditionally raised through its annual events and secure additional funding to sustain Edward Hospital employees and patient care operations.
