James Taylor and his wife, Kim, have stepped up in a big way donating $1 million dollars to Massachusettes General Hospital (MGH) to help out with Coronavirus care efforts.

A native of Boston, James said in a statement, “There is no question that it’s a point of pride for New Englanders to claim the MGH as their hospital – our hospital – and this is especially true today with the threat coming from a new and insidious virus. Kim and I want to be part of this fight. We have been so inspired by the courage and sacrifice of the health care heroes in the trenches who are working so hard to protect us all.”

Kim added, “The MGH is a place that is looked to for leadership – clinical, scientific and ethical – in humanity’s fight against the danger that is around us. We are proud to support a medical center that is leading the way on so many fronts.”

The $1 million dollar donation from the Taylors will go towards the hospital’s Emergency Response Fund, which was originally created shortly after the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 “to provide flexible resources that can be deployed quickly to support immediate need,” per MGH. The fund is now being utilized during the COVID-19 pandemic in “supporting development of in-house testing, establishing a coronavirus hotline for patients, allowing spaces in the hospital to be quickly transformed to accommodate COVID patients, expanding telemedicine capabilities, and purchasing personal protective equipment.”
