MedWorks on the Ground in Joplin; Urgently Needs Support for Mobile Operating Room

MedWorks, a Cleveland-based provider of free healthcare services to the under- and uninsured, is calling for help in creating and equipping a mobile operating room to help care for those hurt in this week's Joplin, MO tornado.

MedWorks has sent a variety of emergency care materials and volunteers to Joplin, MO in response to this week's tornado. In discussions with the staff at the heavily damaged St. John's Hospital, MedWorks founder Zac Ponsky learned of the urgent need for the mobile operating room. To begin this effort, MedWorks enlisted Mobile Medical of Vermont, which is set to arrive in Joplin on Friday.

In addition, MedWorks secured a donation for an operating room table from STERIS Corporation that is due to arrive in Joplin shortly.

However, MedWorks urgently needs additional resources to assist with this effort. To help, please contact Zac Ponsky at 440-773-2939, or go HERE and click on Donate.
