First Choice ER to Donate Over $15,000 in Medical Supplies to Haitian Earthquake Victims
Date:2/3/2010

HOUSTON and DALLAS, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- First Choice Emergency Room's owner, along with the company's management, medical staff, and employees, are making multiple monetary and in-kind donations to the victims of the January 12 earthquake in Haiti.

In response to the magnitude 7.0 quake, which has left an estimated 200,000 people dead, over a million homeless, and over 195,000 awaiting medical attention, First Choice owner Jack Novak personally purchased over $15,000 in medical supplies to be palletized and shipped to the Haitian people. As of January 26, 13 hospitals had been opened in Port-au-Prince, but the devastated country is still in desperate need of health supplies and monetary aid.

In addition to the medical supplies, First Choice ER and its employees banded together to send a monetary donation. And with 80 percent of the Haitian population living below the poverty line before the earthquake, the aid is urgently needed. First Choice plans for both the supplies and the money to reach the victims as quickly as possible, so that it may be put to the best use.

"Even when your line of work is saving lives every day, nothing can prepare you for a disaster of this magnitude," said Novak. "At First Choice, responding to emergencies is what we do. We felt that it was essential to do everything within our means to respond to those in desperate need in every way we can."
