Broadlawns Disaster Relief Fund
Start: Apr 21, 2020 - End: Jul 31, 2020
Broadlawns Medical Center serves as the safety net hospital for Polk County, and our staff is dedicated to fulfilling our mission of ensuring that high quality healthcare is accessible and affordable for everyone in our community.
As the COVID pandemic emerged, the Broadlawns medical team quickly mobilized to ensure that we were prepared to attend to the escalating healthcare needs of our community. The Broadlawns Disaster Fund was established to ensure that financial resources are available to offset the purchase of PPE (masks, gowns, face shields) needed to appropriately equip our medical staff. The fund will also support the investment in technology which has allowed us to transition many of our primary care and mental health appointments to virtual care.
It is our privilege to attend to the healthcare needs of our community, and we are so grateful for the support that we’ve received throughout this elevated time in healthcare. If you would like to support our healthcare team, we invite you to purchase a ONE MISSION shirt and wear your support. We very much appreciate your consideration of support for Broadlawns Medical Center and ONE MISSION!
