Caregiver and Healthcare Worker Support

While we as a community are practicing social distancing – St. Joseph’s Hospitals are never far away.

Since St. Joseph’s founding by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany in 1934, caring for all people has been among the hallmarks upon which we are built. We believe that our most vital resource to combat the coronavirus and to save lives across Tampa Bay is also the most precious and the most fragile.


It is our people – the whole team.


From nurses at the bedside, to respiratory therapists specially trained to operate the ventilators, to environmental services staff who clean and disinfect night and day, to our facilities staff working overnight to turn regular rooms into infection control rooms. It is essential that we provide a helping hand to over 7,000 of the caregivers and healthcare workers who protect our community.


The Caregiver and Healthcare Worker Support Fund has been established as our top fundraising priority during this critical time.


This is the best way possible for people wanting to have an immediate and significant impact on the wellbeing of many caregivers and healthcare workers at the front lines of COVID-19 in our community. We expect support to come in many forms, including childcare, temporary housing, protective equipment, rapid results testing, basic needs, and spiritual support.

Gifts of any size to the Caregiver and Healthcare Worker Support Fund will have a positive impact on our community. To support our caregivers, please donate today.
