New York Healthcare’s Puerto Rico Relief Fund Contributes $1 Million to Puerto Rico Community Foundation
New York Healthcare’s Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Fund, which was established to provide direct aid to healthcare workers and other workers on the front lines of the recovery effort in Puerto Rico, has contributed $1 million to the Puerto Rico Community Foundation (PRCF).
The Fund was established by GNYHA and the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) shortly after Hurricane Maria hit. The contribution will be used to reconstruct or rehabilitate the homes of healthcare workers in Puerto Rico. We are grateful for the generous contributions to the Fund from member hospitals and individual contributors.
“Healthcare workers in Puerto Rico are role models for all of us,” said Bea Grause, president of HANYS. “They are doing incredible work under very difficult circumstances, driven by their commitment to providing much-needed care to a devastated land. HANYS and our member hospitals and health systems across the state are pleased to join our partners in helping healthcare workers, their families, and their communities as Puerto Rico recovers from this disaster.“
