Thank you for caring!

Here’s how you can continue to help our caregivers and community

At HCA Healthcare, we care like family. We support each other, our patients and our community. And we know many of you want to help and support our colleagues, facilities and communities with the COVID-19 response.

HCA Healthcare is taking proactive measures to help ensure the health and safety of patients, caregivers, colleagues and our communities. At this time, the best way to safely support those working on the front lines is to:

Keep Yourself and Others Healthy

Stay home whenever possible, wash your hands often and practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from others. Follow these and all of the guidelines set forth by local, state and federal public health officials including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as we work to slow the spread of the virus.

Give Blood

If you are interested in helping our community in others ways, we urge you to consider making a blood donation through the American Red Cross as our nation’s blood supplies are critically low.

Financial Support

If you are able and would like to help our community during this time, please consider making a financial contribution directly to your favorite non-profit organization or to one of our community’s COVID-19 response funds that will help numerous non-profits support those in need.

Donations can also be made to the HCA Healthcare Hope Fund, which provides compassion and assistance to our colleagues and their families in times of need, or to organizations such as Kansas City YMCA that are providing childcare at a reduced rate for healthcare workers, emergency responders and others on the front lines during this time.

PPE Product Donations

Research Medical Center truly appreciates the generous outpouring of support we are receiving from the communities we serve. However, based on current CDC guidelines, we are not accepting homemade masks at this time.

We will gladly accept donations of manufactured, approved masks, face shields and other personal protective equipment from hardware stores, schools or other sources.

Due to health protocols there are steps that must be completed prior to RMC accepting a PPE donation. Organizations/individuals wanting to donate supplies can contact our donation hotline at (816) 508-4114 or

*Please note that donations to Research Medical Center and/or any of our facilities are not tax-deductible and receipts will not be given.
