Date:9/22/2009

KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- This past week, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) completed delivery and set-up of a medical clinic in Alaska's devastated city of Eagle, where health concerns remain acute following massive flooding in May 2009. The durable medical clinic will serve as the interim Rural Health Center for the village of Eagle where the flooding destroyed every building.

Designed to function in disaster conditions, the BLU-MED clinic consists of adjoining climate-controlled, durable fabric structures, which will stand up to harsh winter weather conditions and provide a clean, warm and safe environment for patient care. The hospital includes separate rooms for examinations, behavioral health, office space as well as a pharmacy.

This interim Rural Health Center will provide services to about 100 people throughout the winter. Serving as a critical treatment center for injuries and minor procedures, it also will enable follow-up care for the patients left homeless after the floods.

This latest initiative is part of a comprehensive, ongoing effort by FEMA to provide relief to disaster survivors.
