Think of it like a gift registry, but for healthcare workers who need supplies, meals or errands to be run.

Thank you KRON4 for letting us know about a new online platform to connect volunteers with healthcare workers in need.

HospitalHero was co-founded by two Bay Area residents Keith Weissglass of Oakland and Andrew Cantino of San Francisco. The idea behind the platform is to help healthcare workers to stay focused on saving lives during the Covid-19 outbreak. 

The platform makes it easy for healthcare workers to make requests for essential needs like meals, lodging, and medical supplies and for volunteers to respond. This includes nurses, doctors, EMTs, admins, support staff, cleaning staff, and anyone else who is helping during this crisis.

Think of it like a gift registry but for healthcare workers – where they can request help with laundry, housecleaning, meals, medical supplies, shopping etc… and if you can help, sign up to pitch in.

300+volunteers, 48 states, 5 countries, and growing! Read more about Hospital Hero
