$500,000 gift will help provide access to resources and supplies for the front lines
May 11, 2020 — The Englewood Health Foundation has received a $500,000 donation from ZT Systems for its Power to Prepare Fund. Established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fund will help Englewood Health provide continuity of high-quality care for patients, obtain necessary supplies and equipment to aid in screening and treatment, and deliver much-needed support for caregivers on the front lines.
“This unprecedented pandemic reminds us that together, we are stronger. Our community’s resilient spirit resulted in an immediate philanthropic commitment to the Power to Prepare Fund,” said Michael Gutter, chairman of the board of trustees of the Englewood Health Foundation. “Thanks to the generosity of Frank Zhang and ZT Systems, our clinical care team can continue to deliver immediate life-saving care to many in our region.”
An international leader in the IT sector and headquartered in Secaucus, NJ, ZT Systems designs, builds and services computer hardware that is central to hyperscale data centers. Hyperscale data centers make possible the cloud computing services that underpin many aspects of critical infrastructure and enable people to work, learn and keep in touch remotely during the recent pandemic.
“There are no words that can express our gratitude to Englewood Hospital and their doctors, nurses and other front line workers for their exceptional work and sacrifices battling the COVID-19 pandemic. We value our relationship with Englewood Health enormously and want to show our continued support to the Englewood Health Foundation,” said Frank Zhang, CEO of ZT Systems.
ZT Systems is a long-time supporter of the Englewood Health Foundation, and with over 1,300 employees across New Jersey and New York, this most recent donation is about giving back to those taking care of their own in one of the communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The arrival of COVID-19 changed much across our shared landscape. What remains unchanged is Englewood Health’s commitment to caring for its patients and families,” said Warren Geller, president and CEO of Englewood Health. “We are grateful to Frank Zhang. He leads by example and this most recent gift from ZT Systems showcases their commitment to neighbors helping neighbors.”
To date, more than $2.8 million in philanthropic gifts has been raised for Englewood Health Foundation’s Power to Prepare Fund thanks to the generosity of the local community.
