Two patients from Haiti arrive at UMHS
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Two patients from Haiti have arrived at UMHS, transported by the Survival Flight fixed-wing aircraft, and are now receiving advanced specialized care from our teams.
The patients have injuries that require complex care that’s available at few medical centers in the country, among them UMHS.
Due to privacy laws, we are not releasing further details about the patients or their injuries at this time. However, we are proud to play this small role in the world's response to the massive tragedy in Haiti, and to offer our air medical transport and our care to these patients. We stand ready to help further if we are asked again by the federal government.
