COVID Employee Compassion Fund

Inside the walls of the hospital, our devoted healthcare teams at UnityPoint Health – Meriter continue to wrestle with the cascading impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Facing waves of unimaginable patient volumes, coupled with nationwide staffing shortages, the emotional toll cannot be overstated.

The Difference we Make Together

With your help, we can continue to support the physical and emotional wellness of Meriter care providers and team members.

Your gift will quickly provide crisis grants to healthcare workers, offer resources for care teams as they address current healthcare conditions and challenges, provide warm meals (giving frontline workers one less thing to worry about) and offer mental health appointments, at no cost to caregivers, as they process and heal from mental and emotional issues related to the pandemic.

As a not-for-profit healthcare system, we are deeply grateful for the generosity the community has shown for the incredible caregivers who have given so much throughout this crisis. Thank you for showing our nurses, physicians and support teams that the community is standing beside them at this critical time.
