Hurricane Maria made landfall months ago but there is still the loss felt all across Puerto Rico. The islands suffered greatly from the storm that left many people missing or dead and those who were either of those things, at times wished they were.
InnovaCare Health was there to help when the storm first touched ground. They were quick to send medical personnel and workers to the islands to help in any way they could. It would be through the handouts of water and food to helping those who needed medical support, the support they needed.
It has been months since the landfall, and while there are some areas that have healed nicely from the devastation, there are others who have not. InnovaCare Health was able to start up clinics and support areas following the hurricane. One place in particular that was affected by the storm quickly started a clinic known as Recargate. This location would serve as a place for people to charge the devices that would put them in touch with others as well as to help them receive the medical help they needed right away.
The humanitarian and medical services that this location held was able to provide car for nearly 4000 residents within the first couple months of opening. It would be able to help more than 1500 patients who either had medical coverage or not. There was no one turned away during this time. It did not matter what their income was prior to the storm or if they were able to have medical coverage then or not.
What was once a run down storefront had been made into the clinic that treated a great number of patients. One family had been looking for a way to receive the medical care that they needed the most. The mother had just enough doses of insulin to make it a day or two, without the insulin, she would die. It was then that the family came across the clinic and was able to get the medicine that the mother needed. For more details visit manta.com
Dr. Rick Shinto knows firsthand what the islands looked like and felt like following the landfall of Hurricane Maria. This is one reason that they were quick to come up with ways to help those out. Since the time that the first clinic had been put into action, there have been more than 30 mobile clinics set up across Puerto Rico. The clinics have primary care doctors or simply physician assistants that can help with medical problems. Most of the clinics hold an onsite pharmacy that allows for the patients to receive the medicines they need.
