Story

The COVID-19 Support Fund continues to provide critical resources to the hospital during the Coronavirus pandemic. Since the first COVID-19 patient was admitted to Bridgeport Hospital on March 14, our entire staff has done an incredible job caring for patients with the disease. At our high point, we cared for over 240 COVID + inpatients, including 42 on mechanical ventilation and over 60 requiring intensive care. In total, we have discharged over 875 COVID + patients back to their homes and families.

Gifts to the COVID-19 Support Fund have benefited our clinical staff in a variety of ways, including individually packaged meals, hotel accommodations and professional dry cleaning of scrubs for those who prefer not to sleep at home and expose their family members to the virus. The Fund also helped to offset the expense of a 32-bed crisis tent constructed on the hospitals main campus to add patient capacity in April and May. In the coming months, contributions will enable the hospital to expand its COVID-19 testing services and make them more accessible to everyone in our community.

With circumstances changing constantly, the COVID-19 Fund is designed to be flexible and provide assistance as needs continue to be identified.
