Medical Equipment for Puerto Rico

In Projectsby Brother's Brother Foundation

Four of the hospitals that BBF has worked in Puerto Rico with have expressed a need for further medical equipment. BBF’s supplier, CHOSEN, has available the following: surgical lights, birthing tables, medical carts, and anesthesia machines.

Additionally, BBF has received a separate request from San Juan Municipal Hospital for two autoclaves.

All four medical system responses were very enthusiastic, and the majority of the requests explained a specific need and gave exact quantities. The surgical lights and anesthesia machines are equipment that BBF does not typically offer, and so represent a unique opportunity to help hospital systems rebuild. All hospitals – and especially San Carlos – were hit hard by the hurricane, suffering large amounts of physical damage.

The autoclave was specifically mentioned as a need for San Juan, and the specifications given by the model from DRE fit San Juan’s request. The current ones at their hospital have surpassed their lifespan, no longer work, and there are no pieces on the market to repair them.

BBF still has Puerto Rico humanitarian funding available, and this project would address an important gap in medical infrastructure throughout Puerto Rico. Geographically, all four quadrants of the island are being covered by the hospitals, which are respectively located in the south, northwest, northeast, and southeast.
