Support the COVID-19 Response Fund for Saddleback Medical Center

During this unprecedented crisis, the importance of community coming together to help others has become so apparent. In that regard, we have had many requests from people throughout the community asking how they can help. 

While schools have closed and events are canceled, Saddleback Medical Center remains available 24/7 to provide care for you and your loved ones during this time of greatest need. Think of the sacrifice our frontline healthcare staff (including risking their own health) is making for the rest of us to stay safe. 

Physicians, nurses, housekeeping staff and other vital hospital workers are leaving their families to care for others. They are working around the clock to keep us safe, and they need our support.

Saddleback Medical Center Foundation has set up a special COVID-19 Response Fund to support emerging needs of our patients and caregivers impacted by COVID-19. Your gift will help by:

  • Enabling Saddleback Medical Center to purchase more medical equipment and protective gear for our staff
  • iPads for a telehealth program being launched and to assist patients in reaching loved ones due to strict visitor restrictions
  • Securing our ability to pay for extended staff time and benefits
  • Providing daycare for children of our frontline staff
  • To make a gift today, text SBCOVID19 to 41444 or click here.

If you can, please consider a tax-deductible gift today to ensure that Saddleback Medical Center is equipped to serve the critical needs of our community during this global health care emergency.
