The United States medical community generates approximately $9 billion of surplus product annually. These supplies are unused or unopened but because the items are considered to be outdated by U.S. standards they are replaced with new materials. At the same time, communities across the globe are in desperate need of medical equipment and supplies.
Dr. Patricia Brock Howard and Dr. Margaret Goetz helped to establish Medical Bridges in the late 1990’s after traveling to El Salvador on a medical mission. Medical Bridges was formed as a recycling program to provide unused medical equipment and supplies — everything from x-ray machines to band-aids, to qualified healthcare providers who needed them. Every individual who receives medical care because of a Medical Bridges donation is a testament to the power of giving—of giving health and giving hope.
