Medical Supply and Equipment Donation

In 2013, University Hospitals increased its donations of medical supplies and equipment to MedWish International, a local organization that supplies humanitarian efforts in developing countries and disaster areas around the world. Donations have increased as a result of committed volunteers who have championed the program and improved communication about the effort.

In 2013, we donated 38,358 pounds of medical supplies to MedWish, a modest increase from 2012. With a more coordinated effort and support from the Office of Sustainability in 2014, we hope to not only increase the tonnage of donations we provide to MedWish, but also the quality of the supplies and equipment.
