Video: IDF Field Hospital Transferring Patients to Other Hospitals in Haiti


danny-moshayev[Video below.] Beginning yesterday, the IDF Medical Corps hospital in Haiti began transferring dozens of patients – orphans and premature babies – to the Italian hospital in Haiti and to the US Navy Ship, the ‘Comfort.’

Israeli Lt. Col. Danny Moshayev said, “Today we are starting a process of evacuating patients to the USNS  ‘Comfort’. We have fully briefed all commanders of the medical divisions in the hospital. We have picked the patients that can be treated in the American ship. We are operating appropriate tools for the evacuation of the patients. In addition to this mission, we are transferring two premature babies. They are being transferred to the regional Italian hospital, which is capable of effectively treating children, and especially premature babies, and we are sending out a medical team to accompany them, bring them to the hospital and make sure that they are getting the best treatment possible.”
