Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) June 30, 2009 -- Atlanta-based Jackson Healthcare (JH), is pleased to partner with Mission Predisan, a Christian, not-for-profit organization, to sponsor two, one week medical brigades to Honduras during 2009. Volunteer physicians, nurses and allied health professionals provide diagnostic and treatment services to the underserved around the world.
"It was important for us to partner with an organization that operated within the same standards of excellence as JH," explained Chad Jackson, director of Jackson Healthcare Charities (JHC), the philanthropic arm of JH. "We have found that in Mission Predisan."
In November 2008, JHC sponsored the first of its medical brigades to Honduras with support from sister organizations, Locumtenens.com (LT), Jackson & Coker (J&C), Jackson Therapy Partners (JTP) and Travel Nurse Solutions (TNS). The team treated a young man, Enrique, who experienced complications from a leg amputation following a motorcycle accident. Following his treatment, he was brought to the U.S. for further care.

During the recent April brigade, Enrique offered assistance as a way of demonstrating his gratitude for the care he had received. He ministered to the patients who were being prepared for major surgery and comforted them. The medical team performed more than 40 surgeries, including removing an eight-pound abdominal tumor that may have proved fatal.
LT President, Shane Jackson, and J&C President, Sandy Garrett, echoed support of the Honduras missions saying they are please
