COVID-19 Ways To Help

In these uncertain and rapidly changing times, St. Joseph Hospital remains firmly committed to the health and well-being of our patients, our staff and the community. In 1912, the Sisters of St. Joseph traveled to California to establish an educational ministry, and in 1918 an influenza epidemic transitioned their focus from education to healthcare for our dear neighbor by founding St. Joseph Hospital in Orange in 1929.

Today, in the spirit and mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, we are still caring for the dear neighbor, and COVID-19 is uncharted waters. Your support now is more critical than ever before, not only to protect yourself and your family, but to help stop the spread of this virus in our community. Together, we will weather this storm.

  • Blood and Plasma Donations from Recovered COVID-19 Patients - American Red Cross

    People who have fully recovered from COVID-19 have antibodies in their plasma that attack the virus. This convalescent plasma is being evaluated as treatment for patients seriously ill from COVID-19. Both blood donations from healthy individuals and plasma donations from recovered COVID-19 patients are needed. Learn more at American Red Cross.
