ORMC Haitian Relief Efforts

The Orange Regional Medical Center family is saddened by the recent devastation caused by the earthquake in Haiti. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this tragedy.

In response, Orange Regional Medical Center is donating over $10,000 worth of medical equipment and surgical supplies such as sutures, gauze, casting material, bandages, cauterizing items and procedure trays.

These supplies are being sent to the Afya Foundation in Yonkers, NY. The Afya Foundation is operating as a clearinghouse and conduit for medical supplies provided to voluntary physician groups, including Boston-based Partners in Health, which has set up field hospitals in Haiti to provide direct trauma care.
