Hospital Associations Donate $15,000 to Hospital Employees Affected by Puerto Rico Hurricanes

CHA and the Regional Associations urge hospitals and health systems to support those impacted by devastating hurricanes in Puerto Rico. The American Hospital Association has established a relief fund, to which CHA and the regional associations have contributed $15,000 in support of hospital workers who have remained dedicated to caring for patients in the hurricanes’ wake, despite historic damage across the island. Each Puerto Rico hospital will identify employees with the most significant needs and disperse the funds accordingly. All administrative services are being provided in kind so that 100 percent of donations will be used to assist hospital employees.

Tax-deductible donations may be made directly to The Care Fund at For more information, email or call (202) 626-2672.
