During the COVID-19 pandemic, International Medical Corps rushed to assist hospitals buckling under high loads of coronavirus cases. Its fleet of additional healthcare workers, extra medical equipment, and mobile field hospitals have helped emergency departments nationwide expand their capacity to treat patients…and given exhausted healthcare workers the lifeline they needed.
An AbbVie donation has helped International Medical Corps construct 20 field hospitals from coast to coast, including areas with minority communities hit especially hard by the coronavirus. With the virus continuing to affect communities across the nation, International Medical Corps has vowed to continue using its funding to provide medical expertise, equipment, training, and triage and treatment services wherever the need is greatest.
