Medisend College Sends Biomedical Equipment to Zoe Geh Medical Center in Liberia

Medisend College has recently shipped three forty-foot, ocean containers filled with life-saving medical equipment to the Zoe Geh Hospital located in rural Liberia, one of the poorest countries in Africa. The shipments are a result of a unique program that enables students in the biomedical engineering technology courses at Medisend College to have a hands-on, practical experience on equipment donated by hospitals and manufacturers.

The donated medical equipment is refurbished by faculty and students and then made available to hospitals and clinics in countries that would not otherwise have access to modern medical equipment. Zoe Geh Foundation, headquartered in Dallas, funded shipping costs.

It is estimated that more than 750,000 people live within 50 miles of the Zoe Geh Medical Center. The closest health care facility is approximately 100 miles away by mainly unpaved roads (4 hours by 4-wheel drive vehicle). Founded in 2004, the Zoe Geh Medical Center began as a dirt-floored clinic and has since grown to a much larger and more modern facility thanks to the efforts of Zoe Geh Foundation under the leadership of Susan and Dr. Woodrow Gandy.

“The dedication of the physicians, surgeons, PA's, nurses and staff at Zoe Geh Medical Center is amazing. They are saving lives and improving the quality of life for patients from all over eastern Liberia and Ivory Coast who often walk long distances for treatment,” says Dr. Woodrow Gandy, “The equipment that Medisend College has sent will be of great benefit to these dedicated healthcare workers and the patients they serve every day.”

Zoe Geh Medical Center in Liberia is only one example of the humanitarian efforts on the part of Medisend College. The organization has trained professional technicians and sent medical equipment to places such as Angola, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, India and Indonesia.

“Medisend College is a unique place for many reasons but, most of all, we value our commitment to improving lives. Every day, we strive to improve the lives of our students, many of whom are US military veterans, and we are dedicated to seeing that the work we do is translated into action by helping those in need,” says Nick Hallack, President and CEO of Medisend College.
