MedShare Western Region Ships to Colombia

Friday, December 11, 2009 MedShare’s Western Regional Distribution Center loaded and shipped a 40 foot container with medical equipment for  SOGAMOSO REGIONAL HOSPITAL in COLOMBIA.

This is a government-funded hospital in the Northwest region of the country that serves as the central referral hospital for the entire Sogamoso Province and is often lacking general supplies for patient services.  According to the hospital directors, the population served is highly impoverished, living mostly in rural farm areas, where many families depend on government assistance for healthcare and other social programs to improve their quality of life.  Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the KIMBERLY CLARK CORPORATION AND FOUNDATION, this hospital will now be receiving a container full of MedShare equipment, including wheelchairs, walkers, exam tables, infant scales, exam lights, crutches, canes, and electric beds!
