Hospital Associations Raise $207,000 for Hospital Employees Affected by Wildfires

Last month, California experienced devastating wildfires that temporarily closed two northern California hospitals and displaced more than 250 hospital employees. Immediately following these events, the California Hospital Association, Hospital Council of Northern and Central California, Hospital Association of Southern California and Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties established the Hospital Workers’ Fire Relief Fund to provide financial support for hospital employees significantly affected by the fires. Through the generosity of over 70 individuals and organizations from across the nation, the fund has raised over $207,000. Hospitals in the affected areas will be contacted this week with information on the process to request a distribution from the fund.
