Scripps Health Preparing for Deployment of Medical Response Team to Haiti,
Date:1/16/2010

Scripps would staff California mobile field hospital

San Diego, CA (Vocus) January 16, 2010 -- In response to the disastrous earthquake in Haiti, the State of California has asked Scripps Health to prepare its Hospital Administrative Support Unit (HASU) and the Scripps Medical Response Team (SMRT) for deployment to Haiti with one of the state’s mobile field hospitals. The deployment would be under the authority of the State of California and the United States government.

At this time, Scripps is waiting for final notice of deployment and has enlisted nearly 100 medical personnel – physicians, nurses, technicians and administrators - to staff a mobile field hospital. Teams of approximately 55 will serve two weeks in Haiti and be replaced by a new team of volunteers.

“There are people suffering in Haiti and we have an opportunity to reach out in a very real way because of our expertise and experience after Hurricane Katrina to staff and run a mobile field hospital and bring care to those in desperate need,” said Scripps CEO Chris Van Gorder, who will join the first Scripps team to Haiti.

California maintains three mobile field hospitals available for medical support. A 23,000-square-foot mobile field hospital is designed to provide a completely self-sustained emergency medical operation with 222 beds within 72 hours.

The mobile hospital includes a power generation system, HVAC systems, electrical distribution systems, and specialized mobile medical equipment including ventilators, monitors, diagnostic equipment, portable oxygen delivery systems, emergency/triage facilities, an operating room, two intensive care units with a total of 20 bed
