CORPORATE SPONSORS COME TO HAITI’S AID
 
Doctors Hospital Organizes Disaster Relief for Haiti
 
 
On Tuesday, January 12, an earthquake struck the island nation of Haiti collapsing a hospital, the presidential palace and other buildings and residences, triggering massive panic among the Haitian people and claiming a number of lives -- perhaps hundreds of thousands.
 
The devastating earthquake has left an estimated 3 million people in need of emergency aid, and as the world mobilizes, closer to home, in Nassau, Doctors Hospital joins the recovery efforts to assist Haiti and its earthquake victims. 
 
Enlisting the assistance of corporate friends Ports International, Commonwealth Drug, Lowe's Pharmacy, Medical Supplies, True Value, Nassau Agencies, Bahamas Medical & Surgical Supplies and MD & S International, Doctors Hospital and its partners were able to fill numerous planes with their contributions, including sheets and blankets donated by hospital Associates. By organizing medical supplies and aid to the relief effort, Doctors Hospital continues to make a positive contribution to the advancement of healthcare in the Region, as mandated in its mission statement. 
 
In addition to mobilizing resources to donate to Haiti, the hospital also donated a check in the amount of Five Thousand ($5,000) dollars and is working with the Rotary Clubs of Nassau through the involvements of its CEO, a Rotary member and its Vice President of Operations, Ms. Michele Rassin who also serves as Rotary’s East Nassau club’s President to provide even more relief for Haiti.
 
Issuing a memorandum to Associates of Doctors Hospital, relative to the disaster, Charles Sealy, Chief Executive Officer for the hospital, states “We want to express our heartfelt sympathies to those involved in the disaster in whatever way. Lives have been lost while many more remain missing. No doubt there are members of our staff who have family that have been affected by this tragedy. Continue to be in prayer for the people of Haiti as well as for their families who continue to deal with the difficulty of this situation.”
 
The quake, one of the most powerful ever in the region, measured a magnitude of 7.0.  It was centered about 10 miles west of Port-au-Prince, the capital city of Haiti.
