GW and the GW Medical Faculty Associates (MFA) are working closely with the GW Hospital to understand their needs and provide all the support possible. The university will be providing temporary housing to medical professionals who are unable to travel home to be with their families while they are providing urgent medical care during this growing pandemic. These rooms will be available starting today, April 13, 2020.
“Preserving the health and well-being of our health care workforce is a top priority for GW. To alleviate any added stress from finding alternative housing during this time, we are providing on-campus housing options for our health care workers. As we navigate the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, this is one way that GW can show its support for the hard working and dedicated frontline health care teams,” said Barbara L. Bass, MD, Vice President for Health Affairs, Dean of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and CEO of the GW Medical Faculty Associates.
