By HFT Staff

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will be sending more than $2.6 million to the State of Connecticut to reimburse Danbury Hospital for the cost of purchasing materials needed to safely treat patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The $2,640,000 FEMA Public Assistance grant will reimburse the 456-bed acute care hospital – part of the Nuvance Health system – for the cost of purchasing a wide range of medical products for treating COVID patients between March 2020 and December 2021, as well as providing food delivery for hospital staff unable to leave the facility during self-quarantine/isolation. 

The hospital also purchased personal protective equipment (PPE) such as N95 masks, medical gloves, medical gowns, surgical masks, shoe covers, and coveralls for its staff, and cleaning/disinfection supplies like germicidal wipes, hand sanitizers and disinfectant foam spray. 

So far, FEMA has provided more than $649 million in Public Assistance grants to Connecticut to reimburse the state for pandemic-related expenses.
