Covid-19 Relief Efforts

Special Edition Pulse Covid-19 April 2020

Stepping up for our Community

The Salem Health Foundation has funded several initiatives to help battle this deadly virus:

The Salem Health Foundation has joined with community partners to support the start up of Alluvium, a new mobile response unit. Ran by volunteer healthcare professionals, these clinicians provide mobile healthcare and referrals for people who would otherwise use critical emergency personnel and services.

In partnership with the Salem Fire Department and Falck Ambulance, Alluvium will respond to community members who are displaying COVID-19 symptoms not severe enough to require care at the emergency department.

The innovative trial effort offers additional in-home support to the most vulnerable people in our community. ER and Fire Ambulance crews would be able to move more quickly to the next emergency call, leaving a non-emergency call to Alluvium heroes.
