Rising to the Challenge
For more than 150 years, University Hospitals has served the community with unrelenting compassion and purpose. In response, those that live and work here have played a critical role in sustaining the UH mission. COVID-19 has tested the health system and the community, but both have risen to the challenge.
A corporate leader with a strong history of philanthropy and social responsibility, PNC continued its longstanding support to UH and the community we serve with a $50,000 donation to the UH COVID-19 Caregiver Support Fund. The gift will help defray unanticipated costs associated with the crisis, including providing for the protection, wellness and resilience of UH caregivers during the pandemic.
“Health care providers are on the frontlines every day, caring for our loved ones during this unprecedented public health crisis,” said Pat Pastore, PNC regional president for Cleveland. “PNC realizes the sacrifices they are making and we’re proud to lend a hand to University Hospitals.
“Greater Clevelanders have a long history of supporting one another in difficult times,” he added. “This is no different. By working together, Northeast Ohio will emerge stronger and healthier.”
University Hospitals is grateful to all individuals and organizations willing to help our caregivers, patients and community during the COVID-19 crisis. Community response and caregiver support funds have been established to support the extensive patient care, medical supplies, research and education needs.
