Container Arrival: Hospital San Miguel Arcangel in Panama

In April, MedShare’s Western Region shipped a container of medical supplies and equipment to the Hospital San Miguel Arcangel in Panama.

The hospital is one of the largest government run public health institutions in the country, with about 170,000 patients seen annually, a large percentage being indigent populations unable to pay for services. Among the 1,000 supplies on the container were:

  • ambu bags
  • abdominal pads
  • laryngeal mask airways
  • lab coats
  • needles
  • gauze dressings
  • an electrosurgical unit
  • layrngoscopes
  • nebulizers
  • exam tables

We are happy to report that the container arrived safely and was unloaded. Check out these photos they sent us:
