Sutter Health Surgical Team Sends Updates From Haiti
Date:1/24/2010

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Sutter Health's 15-member surgical care team deployed to Haiti on Thursday, Jan. 21, following this month's earthquake is now providing updates on its vital work via a personal blog, which launched on Saturday. Relayed back to Northern California by satellite phone and then transcribed, the group's stories and photos appear on www.shhelpshaiti.blogspot.com/.

"I consider it an honor to lead Sutter Health's response to this terrible tragedy," says Toni Brayer, M.D., Sutter Health West Bay Region chief medical officer and lead for the network's donation and surgical team efforts. Coordinating all logistics from her home in Marin, she says, "So many people are suffering, and our team is now able to provide critical medical care."

"We received so many questions from our friends, colleagues and the team member's families about their experiences in Haiti, so we were compelled to share their stories and reports online," says Dr. Brayer.

The effort to send medical personnel to Haiti is part of Sutter Health's larger commitment to relief efforts. The network, comprised of physician organizations, hospitals and other health care service providers, announced last week its largest disaster-relief donation in the history of the health care system—$1.25 million to help the victims of the powerful earthquake.
