Nearly one year ago, COVID-19 became a frightening reality in western Massachusetts. Today, Baystate Health continues its fight against the pandemic, modifying its facilities to create safer work and treatment spaces, redeploying team members to meet patient needs, and adapting to the new norm of what it means to provide healthcare.
As Baystate Health focuses on responding to COVID-19 while continuing to protect our patients, staff and community, we are immensely grateful for the outpouring of support that Baystate Health Foundation has received. Donations have aided efforts on every front as we work together to defeat COVID-19.
A longtime supporter of Baystate Health, the law firm of Bulkley Richardson joined in this effort with a $10,000 donation to the Baystate Health Fund to support the health system’s ongoing efforts to battle the escalating coronavirus pandemic.
“We could not ignore the toll COVID-19 is taking on our community,” shared Bulkley Richardson Partner, Peter Barry. “The firm wanted to make a contribution that could be put to immediate use and demonstrate our support of Baystate Health’s frontline workers. The pandemic is unlike anything we have witnessed before, and it remains a threat to our health and well-being. We wanted to express our support and gratitude in a meaningful way.”
With COVID-19 continuing to impact our community, donations of all sizes to the Baystate Health Fund remain critical in Baystate Health’s ability to direct resources where the need is greatest, whether for purchasing supplies and equipment, repurposing space, or furthering research and education for COVID-19 treatments and means of prevention.
“During these challenging times, there is nothing more important than having advanced care accessible to all of us,” said Barry. “The courage and sacrifice of the healthcare workers who are on the frontline protecting us with care and dedication is so inspiring. We want to ensure that Baystate Health has the necessary resources as we continue to face the unknown.”
