Ecumenical Free Bed Fund Committee

This committee is made up of nine local New Haven Churches who are the nominators for over 25 hospital free bed funds, funds donated to the hospital more than 70 years ago. Interest and earnings on the funds are used to provide free care and reduced cost care for patients who qualify for the requirements outlined in the donated funds, which may include membership in their church, local community or civic organization.
