Florida Hospital North Pinellas Employees Organize Mission Trip to India

Tarpons Springs, Florida (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

Employees and Physicians of Florida Hospital North Pinellas, as an expression of their mission to “Extend the Health Ministry of Christ,” are leaving Tampa Bay for Delhi, India on a mission trip to help provide medical care and much needed supplies. The two physicians and twelve employees will split into two teams, a medical team and children’s team during their two week stay.

“We plan on helping the people of Delhi and surrounding villages with clinical screenings and vaccinations. While we are there we will also be offering acute medical and prevention education on typhoid, malaria, cholera and hepatitis. We believe giving back to our local community and beyond fulfills our mission not only at Florida Hospital but as physicians,” said Dr. Vinod Raxwal, Florida Hospital North Pinellas Cardiologist.

The hospital children’s team will be bringing supplies to schools including crayons, coloring books, toothbrushes and toothpaste. They will spend quality time with the kids at each of the village schools teaching them health and wellness activities.
“At Florida Hospital North Pinellas, we serve our local community and beyond because it’s the right thing to do. Mission trips are just one example of going above and beyond to help those in need. Employees tell me the biggest reward is seeing the joy on the faces of the people they are helping.

We are lucky to have employees that care not only for patients here at our hospital but around the world,” said Bruce Bergherm, President and CEO of Florida Hospital North Pinellas.

The trip is being funded entirely through donations and fundraising events. All donations are tax deductible and checks made payable to the Helen Ellis Memorial Foundation. As a not-for-profit hospital, Florida Hospital North Pinellas relies on the support of our friends in the community. Established in 2000, Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital Foundation works to address the hospital’s needs and enables the hospital to provide exceptional care to patients.
