Care for the Caregiver Resources

HASC is committed to the well-being of its member hospitals and recognizes that resilient, healthy employees are a workforce asset every day, especially during the current pandemic. During these challenging times, we realize that your health care workforce may be experiencing higher levels of stress, anxiety, grief, and other challenges as safe and reliable patient care continues to be provided to the communities that you serve. 

HASC created this Care for the Caregiver webpage to provide information to help hospitals and their employees stay safe, healthy, and feel connected during this COVID-19 time. We are here to support your well-being and invite you to use the resources that we have listed and hope that you will find them useful.

With any questions, please contact Lisa Mitchell, HASC Program Manager, Workforce Development, lmitchell@hasc.org or (213) 538-0722.
