Carolinas HealthCare System Volunteers to Join Navy Rescue Mission in Haiti
Date:2/8/2010

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Medical teams from Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) will soon be headed to Haiti. Through an agreement with the Department of the Navy, CHS is organizing volunteer groups who will spend two weeks at a time providing care to victims of the January earthquake.

The first contingent of 10 licensed providers is expected to deploy in mid-February and will remain in Haiti for two weeks.  Navy medical officials will determine the make-up of each contingent, but each will include one or more physicians plus other medical personnel including mid-level providers, nurses, respiratory therapists, and physical and occupational therapists.  They will work in a field hospital attached to the American hospital ship Comfort.

"Since the devastating earthquake in January I have heard from many of our colleagues and teammates," said CHS Chief Executive Officer Michael Tarwater.  "They desperately want to help with Haiti relief efforts.  They see that the need continues to be overwhelming and they are deeply concerned that opportunities to provide healing have been impeded by the many challenging conditions on the ground.  Now, in conjunction with the Navy, we have a means for them to directly apply their skills in ways that will make a difference."

Dr. Michael Bosse, an orthopedic trauma surgeon at Carolinas Medical Center and retired Navy Captain, was instrumental in making contact with '/>"/>
