In our tenth year, we find our team as busy as ever during this hurricane season. For the past 40 days, we have had to focus solely on the emergency response and meeting the needs of patients in the affected regions. We are fully engaged in these response efforts, and we are still here for support. Our team is continuing to work diligently on efficient response to the growing number of challenges related to Hurricane Maria, and the on-going recovery from Irma and Harvey.
A current challenge in Puerto Rico has been the movement of medicines and medical supplies. At this time, we have identified that there are complexities/difficulties surrounding the infrastructure and the ability to navigate through the territory. We are hard at work trying to formulate or identify solutions and execute them as quickly as possible.
Due to the possibility of severe weather approaching Puerto Rico in the coming days, we are prepared for additional impacts on the healthcare sector. That said, we continue to assess current patient needs and as well as attempt to identify future ones.
With knowledge of these challenges, Healthcare Ready strives to be an organization that avoids duplicating relief efforts carried out by other organizations. Instead, by identifying gaps we are able to streamline and implement solutions to problems that arise. In the meantime, stay tuned for more updates via our website and social media. Thank you again for all of your patience as our team works diligently to bring about solutions. If you have questions, we are here to help!
