Donate to Support Our Providers

Today, we face a crisis unlike any other. Our providers are on the frontlines and risking their own health to provide care to our community.

We ask for your support so we can ensure our nurses, physicians and other clinicians have the supplies and protective equipment they need to safely provide care. We are accepting donations of protective supplies, including masks, goggles, hand sanitizer, gowns and gloves.

Or, you can make a financial gift, which will help pay for urgent additional resources at a time of dire need. We've been there for you for nearly 100 years; please be there for us.

How to Donate

To make a financial gift, click the donate button below and indicate on the online form that your donation is for COVID-19 assistance.

Urgent Need: Isolation Gowns

Increased patient volumes have depleted our inventory of disposable isolation gowns. Please help us by using your spare time to make DIY isolation gowns. This project does not require sewing skills and is suitable for both adults and teens/older kids.   

To learn more on how you can donate your homemade gowns, please contact Julia Belanger at 860.261.6384 or through email at jbelange@bristolhospital.org or use our Contact Us form at the bottom of this page.

Brian's Story

It was business as usual for Brian Dehm until he had to undergo an emergency appendectomy. He could have chosen any hospital, but chose Bristol even though he lives in Simsbury. “I knew I could count on the Emergency Department, Drs. Sayre and the surgeons, the nurses, and all the caregivers here at Bristol Hospital when I needed them most. We’re all fortunate the hospital is here, and that’s why I support it monetarily, and as a volunteer.”
