As a system, we are implementing innovative approaches every day to support the health and well-being of all Marylanders. To support our efforts at University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedics Institute, please consider a gift to the COVID-19 Response Fund. 

COVID-19 Response Fund Philanthropy plays a vital role in our response efforts and benefits our cutting-edge research and clinical trials, development of novel treatments, and outreach to the community. The COVID-19 Response Fund ensures that we can respond as efficiently as possible to the greatest needs of our frontline workers, patients, and communities. 

In addition to immediate needs, the fund supports investments in advanced equipment and telehealth infrastructure, as well as critical community outreach programs: 
  • Advanced Equipment - Investing in revolutionary technology that significantly reduces the transmission risk of COVID-19.
  • Community Emergency Action Fund - Reaching beyond our hospital walls to help our neighbors in need by providing necessities, such as food, personal protective equipment (PPE), etc.
  • Telemedicine - Expanding our telehealth infrastructure to meet the health care and wellness needs of our patients. 
  • Community Initiative: Testing - A community program that provides access to COVID-19 testing and immediate results to help limit the spread of this virus. This is a time for us all to pull together.  And many people have asked how they can help.
