CoxHealth Starts Fund To Help Its Employees Who Might Be Impacted By COVID-19

CoxHealth’s Board of Directors has established a $1 million fund to help CoxHealth employees as they help care for the community.

According to CoxHealth, the Employee Heroes Fund “will be used to assist employees in offsetting the situations created by their time and service during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Employees may apply for help for things like childcare, internet service to keep children connected to school, meal support, accommodations if they are required to stay close to the hospital, medications or other needs directly related to this crisis.
