Working together to make a difference.
In the wake of COVID-19, EvergreenHealth’s community and beyond have shown us that true generosity and compassion exists in our world, especially in our backyard. Today, traditionally would be a day for us to come together–to celebrate as a community the accomplishments of our hospital and dreams of our future. However, a pandemic is front and center in our communities and in an effort to project the safety of our community, we have shifted from our annual celebration to a virtual experience supporting the creation of an ICU for the future of EvergreenHealth.
Despite this pivot, our focus has remained fixed on the care of our patients and community. The Intensive Care Unit (ICU), has been at the center of the COVID-19 pandemic, diagnosing the first patient in the United States. Our ICU needs you, to help it continue to care for patients today, and in the future by providing the latest advancements in technology to our providers to support outstanding care in our facility.
The time to make an impact is now, and we are calling on you to act.
Our community gives us cause to celebrate. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic our community has come together like none other. Leadership, providers, caregivers, nurses and staff have been overwhelmed with gratitude and the community response to support us in this time of unpredictability.
From the hand-written thank-you cards, to the delicious meals generously donated by our local restaurants, to the care packages created by community members–your kindness motivates us to continue. With your hearts, we ask for your help again.
The ICU’s critical need for technology will advance care and continue to build a robust foundation for in patient-centered care. Whether you have been a patient, have a family member whom we support, or seek an opportunity to make a lasting impact on your community–we need you to act today. Funds from our 2020 Evergreen Virtual Gala will go directly to the purchase of urgent medical equipment to support patients and providers. Help us reach our $1 million dollar goal to purchase critical technology for our ICU of the future.
Your time is now, and we ask for you as our community to continue leading with your hearts to better EvergreenHealth now, and in the future for generations to come.
