President’s Message – Fay Fund at Bridgeport Hospital

There is much in the news about the role hospitals can play in taking on increased social service responsibilities so that patients can avoid frequent hospital admissions. Patients and their families often struggle with a host of challenges resulting from poverty. The Fay Fund at Bridgeport Hospital enables us to improve the well-being of our patients and assist them in the face of difficult situations.

The Fay Fund at Bridgeport Hospital was established to support the non-medical needs of patients to help maintain their dignity and the dignity of their family when they lack the resources to pay for expenses such as:

  • Clothes so they can be safely released from the hospital
  • A cane or a walker to be used at home
  • An electric bill so a family has heat and can bring a loved one home to care for them
  • Minor repair of an automobile so a mother can transport her son back and forth to rehabilitation services
  • Replacement of a stolen iPad for a disabled patient who requires it to communicate

These are merely a few of the ways the Fay Fund helps us support the essential needs of patients in our community. There are few other resources within the Foundation that help make such a difference in the lives of those we serve.

Please consider a one-time gift today to assist our most vulnerable patients.
