Thanks for caring!
Here’s how you can continue to help our caregivers and community
At Overland Park Regional Medical Center, we care like family. We support each other, our patients and our community. And we know many of you want to help and support our colleagues, facilities and communities with the COVID-19 response. We are taking proactive measures to help ensure the health and safety of patients, caregivers, colleagues and our communities. At this time, the best way to safely support those working on the front lines is to:
Keep yourself and others healthy
Stay home whenever possible, wash your hands often and practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from others. Follow these and all of the guidelines set forth by local, state and federal public health officials including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as we work to slow the spread of the virus.
If you are interested in helping our community in others ways, we urge you to consider making a blood donation through the American Red Cross as our nation’s blood supplies are critically low.
If you are able and would like to help our community during this time, please consider making a financial contribution directly to your favorite non-profit organization or to one of our community’s COVID-19 response funds that will help numerous non-profits support those in need.
Donation can be made to the HCA Healthcare Hope Fund, which provides compassion and assistance to our colleagues and their families in times of need, or to organizations such as YMCA of Greater Kansas City that are providing childcare at a reduced rate for healthcare workers, emergency responders and others on the front lines during this time.
