Team Member Emergency Fund

While we as a community are practicing social distancing – St. Joseph’s Hospitals are never far away.

Since St. Joseph’s founding by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany in 1934, caring for all people has been among the hallmarks upon which we are built. We believe that our most vital resource to combat the coronavirus and to save lives across Tampa Bay is also the most precious and the most fragile.


It is our people – the whole team.


From nurses at the bedside, to respiratory therapists specially trained to operate the ventilators, to environmental services staff who clean and disinfect night and day, to our facilities staff working overnight to turn regular rooms into infection control rooms. It is essential that we provide a helping hand to over 7,000 of the caregivers and healthcare workers who protect our community.


The Team Member Emergency Fund has been established as a top fundraising priority during this critical time.

You can make an immediate and significant impact on the wellbeing of our healthcare heroes at the front lines of COVID-19 in our community. Gifts of any size to the Team Member Emergency Fund help provide support and basic necessities to team members experiencing a financial hardship due to a personal or COVID-related crisis.
