University Hospitals Caregiver Support Fund Receives Generous Financial Donation from Cleveland Browns

Thursday, December 31, 2020

Donation will help meet the needs of caregivers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic

CLEVELAND – University Hospitals (UH) is pleased to announce a donation of more than $21,000 from the Cleveland Browns as part of Browns’ “Hats Off to Our Heroes” fundraising campaign. The donation to the UH Caregiver Support Fund, established at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, will help support services and resources aimed at providing comfort, compassion, special recognition and relief to UH caregivers as they attend to the health and wellness of our communities at this vital time.


The Browns in April launched the “Hats Off to Our Heroes” Fund, focused on aiding health care professionals, first responders, educational professionals and other groups who are pivotal in the community year round and are valiantly serving as role models in the face of significant adversity due to COVID-19. For a significant period of time, the team committed 100 percent of its net proceeds from 2020 Browns jersey sales to the “Hats Off To Our Heroes” Fund.


“University Hospitals is honored to be a beneficiary of the Cleveland Browns’ generosity. Our partnership with the Browns organization is a valued part of our commitment to the community we serve. Thank you for recognizing the valiant efforts of our caregivers. We will honor them as stewards of your generous gift,” said Cliff A. Megerian, MD, FACS, University Hospitals President.


During Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Browns will formally recognize the beneficiaries of the “Hats Off to Our Heroes” Fund which also include Maple Heights School District online education program and Medworks Unconditional Care COVID-19 Relief Fund.
