How You Can Help

Get Vaccinated

Protect yourself. Protect your family. Protect your community.

When it’s your turn, take your shot! The Virginia Department of Health encourages those receiving the vaccine to get the first vaccine available to them. Visit for more information.

Wear a Mask

Protect yourself and others.

We strongly encourage our community members to wear face masks whenever leaving home and particularly when social distancing is not possible. Face masks are also required when inside any Valley Health building. Thank you for keeping our caregivers safe!

Donations of Meals and Gifts

Our staff and patients have been especially grateful of donations, meals and gifts received over the past few months. If you are thinking about making a donation, please follow these guidelines:

Say Thank You to a Caregiver

Our caregivers are driven to bring you the best healthcare. We want to make sure they feel valued every day, but especially during this difficult time. If there is a Valley Health provider you would like to recognize, please visit and join us in thanking them for all they do.

Donate to the COVID-19 Response Effort

Healthcare needs are changing daily and donated funds can assist us in caring for our patients and staff. To make a gift to the COVID-19 Response Effort, visit and select "Where it is Needed Most" for your hospital.
