In these extraordinarily difficult times, we extend our gratitude to our first responders and healthcare staff who are, at great risk, continuing to provide care and services. Our thoughts are especially with those who have lost loved ones or who have become sick themselves from COVID-19.
The healthcare community will play a critical role in responding to and recovering from this crisis, and we at the Center are committed to helping our grantees in any way we can. Our staff is available to support any partners whose ability to operate as planned has been disrupted.
We also underscore and support the guidance of public health authorities until the spread of the virus can be contained. This terrible disease has exposed significant flaws in our healthcare system, and looking ahead, it is clear that the need for affordable, proven care solutions will be even greater as we strive to protect the health of our communities and restore the economic viability of our nation.
