Care for the Caregiver Resources

HASC is committed to the well-being of its member hospitals and their staff. We recognize that resilient, healthy employees are a workforce asset every day, especially throughout the current pandemic. During these challenging times, we know your health care workers may be experiencing higher levels of stress, anxiety, grief and other challenges as they continue providing safe and reliable patient care to your communities. 

HASC created this Care for the Caregiver webpage to help hospitals and their employees stay safe, healthy and connected during this COVID-19 time. We’re here to support your well-being and we invite you to use and share these resources. We hope you’ll find them useful.

For any questions, please contact Lisa Mitchell, HASC Program Director, Workforce Development, [email protected] or (213) 538-0722.
