Maricopa Integrated Health System provides medical supplies for Mexico earthquake relief

September 22, 2017

Maricopa Integrated Health System today donated six pallets of life-saving medical supplies and medications to aid victims of the central Mexico earthquake.

The much needed supplies will be flown to Mexico Sunday morning by Project C.U.R.E.  as part of a nationwide effort to provide humanitarian relief to victims of the catastrophic 7.1 earthquake that has injured thousands and left more than 200 people dead.

Donated supplies include gowns, gloves, sterile bandages and wraps. MIHS also is donating life-sustaining medications that include antibiotics, anti-microbial treatments, insulin and heart failure drugs.

The local relief effort is being coordinated by Intermestic Partners and the Carlos Slim Foundation. They are working with Project C.U.R.E., the largest provider of donated medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world. 

Steve Purves, MIHS President and CEO, said our health care organization moved quickly after receiving the request for help.

“Within hours, we were able to get the humanitarian aid identified, sorted, packed and ready for delivery,” he said. “For everyone on the MIHS team, it is an honor to be part of this effort to lend a hand in helping our neighbors in their time of need.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Mexico as they navigate through this heartbreaking  tragedy,” Purves said.
