Those living in Beauregard, Vernon and surrounding Parishes have a history of pulling together in support and harmony of the true meaning of what is good and best for each other. Many appreciative and concerned patients, business owners and community members are asking how they can both support the health system and our employees during this extraordinary time. With the blessings from many wanting to help, we are pleased to announce the creation of a special fund to support our work with the coronavirus pandemic. The COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund will be used to support:
- Employees, our courageous and committed healthcare heroes, as they stand ready to care for patients and their loved ones
- Critical staffing needs
- Patient care including testing, medication and medical supplies
- Personal Protective Equipment, ventilators, tents
- In-kind donations such as gloves and hand sanitizer
- Meals and snacks for staff working long hours throughout the health system
- As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, needs may increase or change. The Fund is designed to provide assistance as needs continue to be identified.
“Contributions from individuals, organizations and businesses will aid in bridging the vital gaps and make a remarkable difference in the lives of our clinical and support staff, and the communities we serve,” said Kelli C. Broocks, Vice President of Corporate Development at Beauregard Health System.
