EHC Management, Rotary Send 700 Hospital Beds to Haiti, Jamaica
Date:4/29/2010

Collaboration called a blueprint for future international disaster relief efforts

(PRWEB) April 29, 2010 -- A joint effort between EHC Management, L.L.C., and Rotary International is delivering nearly 700 hospital beds and other medical equipment to earthquake-ravaged Haiti and nearby Spanish Town, Jamaica.

The collaboration was the brainchild of Lynne Stubblefield, project manager for EHC, and John Eaton, president of the Rotary Club of Shelton, Wa. Both organizations said they will use this operation as a blueprint for future global relief efforts.

"As the people of Haiti recover and rebuild, these materials will give them comfort during a terrible time," Anne Nipp, EHC Management's CEO, said on Tuesday. "Thanks to Lynne and John's initiative, we now have a new, responsible way to help care for others in need around the world."

Eaton said the donation and delivery of the 691 hospital beds from EHC Management's West Coast long-term care communities is "another small, yet significant, contribution made possible by Rotarians partnering with business to provide humanitarian aid and promote world understanding and peace. It's something I'm very happy that I could be a part of."

The first three of seven containers full of donated equipment have arrived in Spanish Town, "where they are in desperate need of beds," Eaton said. They will be delivered to St. Catherine Hospital there. The second wave of shipments is scheduled to arrival in Haiti over the next several weeks, where Food for the Poor, a U.S.-based international relief and development charity, has agreed to receive the shipments. The beds and other supplies will then be distributed where they are needed most.

The surplus hospital beds have been picked up at nine of the initial 10 EHC locations as of Tuesday. The beds, mostly manually-adjustable models, were made
