The COVID-19 pandemic is presenting challenges to individuals, societies and health care systems. At Newton-Wellesley Hospital (NWH), we have a longstanding commitment to emergency preparedness planning. In recent months, our well-established procedures have helped us prepare for COVID-19. Along with our partners at Mass General Brigham, we have worked tirelessly to make sure we have the best possible plans, protocols and resources in place to protect patients, colleagues and our community. To meet these needs, we have established a special fund for this emergency: the NWH COVID-19 Fund. All gifts to this fund will be directed toward care for those affected by the virus, measures to contain its spread, and support for our clinicians and staff, many of whom are community members themselves.
