All types of equipment are needed in Haiti to help the injured. The Florida Alliance of Home Care Services is working with the Accredited Medical Equipment Providers of America to gather equipment to send to Haiti. The Associations are working with medical missions and other non-profit entities to collect home medical equipment and identify the proper groups to distribute it.
HME providers are invited to check your warehouses for wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds, commodes, oxygen concentrators and even nebulizers that are in good working order which could be donated. Collection points are being set up in South Florida. The Reef management Group has generously allowed the HME community to use an empty 1600 square foot warehouse, next to City Medical Services as a Central Collection Center for North Miami-Dade and South Broward Counties.
Items being collected include:
Hospital Beds (As long as the motors are intact and rise with hand cranks)
Oxygen Concentrators (With Oxygen Purity levels above 80%)
Suction Machines (Working)
Please arrange drop off at:

Collection Centers in Palm Beach County and South Miami-Dade will open soon.
