Northwell Health is committed to fighting back against coronavirus (COVID-19), taking bold measures to keep our patients and fellow New Yorkers safe.

For answers to frequently asked questions about COVID-19, Northwell’s approach to containing and treating the virus, as well as how this affects specific groups of people, such as pregnant women and children please go to the Northwell Health Coronavirus Digital Resource Center.
Where do the funds I raise for or donate to the Northwell Health COVID-19 Fund go? Click to read more
The Northwell Health COVID-19 Fund was activated to provide essential support and resources for the 72,000 professionals on the front lines in the battle against the virus. Here’s how the dollars you raise or donate will be put to work to help save lives:
You’ll help the vast Northwell Health system coordinate with state and local governments to respond to COVID-19 while still treating all of the patients who rely on us for care.
You’ll help us respond to the needs of the communities we serve and to care for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.
You’ll help us provide crucial support like child care and mental health services to the courageous men and women of Northwell Health who are putting themselves at risk each day by showing up to work to help others.
You’ll help us expand telemedicine and remote monitoring programs so we can treat seniors and immunocompromised people who are isolated due to the virus. This also helps reduce the number of people attempting to get care at our facilities, preserving much needed space for newly diagnosed patients.
You’ll help fuel cutting-edge labs at the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research, which has already launched three innovative clinical trials aimed at solving the COVID-19 pandemic.
You’ll help us prepare for the expected surge of new COVID-19 patients with more ventilators, ICU monitors and isolation rooms for our facilities, and protective gear for our medical teams.
100% OF THE DOLLARS WE RAISE WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE FUND’S PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
