Sequoia's Caregiver Response Fund

Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital has served the community for 70 years and has always anticipated and responded to the needs of the community. Today is no different, as our hospital and our community face the threat of COVID-19.

In coordination with San Mateo County, the State of California, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Sequoia is taking every possible step to address COVID-19 by identifying cases, isolating patients, and providing them care and the best chance at recovery. At the same time we’re taking extraordinary precautions to protect the community at large, our caregivers, and all staff and visitors.

At a time when communities must come together to provide prevention, healing and recovery, Sequoia Hospital is providing the medical care necessary to help us navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our Need

We cannot do this urgent/imperative/critical work alone. As part of Dignity Health and CommonSpirit Health, we are uniquely positioned to address this crisis.

As part of the largest nonprofit healthcare system in the United States, Sequoia Hospital has access to medical resources, best practices, and clinical information that will directly impact our work with patients. Locally, we rely on medical professionals, community leaders, volunteers, and a broad array of donors to advance our work. We will continue to rely on these individuals as this situation unfolds.

To address COVID-19 in our community, the Sequoia Hospital Foundation has created the Caregiver Response Fund, to provide philanthropic financial resources to Sequoia Hospital.

Donations to this fund are restricted to the hospital’s response to COVID-19 and treatment of patients affected by it.

Among the critical areas supported by this fund:

  • Medical supplies
  • Equipment
  • Resiliency training and resources for physicians, nurses, and hospital staff
  • Education
  • Funding for additional nurses and caregivers

Gifts of any size to the Caregiver Response Fund will make a positive impact in our community. To support our caregivers, please donate today.
