Penn Care recently donated one of our Pre-Owned ambulances to the Cat Cay Medical Clinic Foundation located in the Bahamas. The 2003 MedTec Type I ambulance was a trade-in vehicle from Rescue Hose and Ladder Company Ambulance Service located in Curwensville, PA. This unit will be used on the Bahama Island of Andros, a 100 mile long Island with 1 full time clinic, 1 doctor for 20,000 inhabitants & staffed by volunteer emergency physicians from the US and Canada. This ambulance will be an incredible asset to the people of Andros. The Andros Ambulance project is Cat Cay Medical Clinic Foundation’s effort to bring EMS to the outer islands of the Bahamas where currently they have nothing but basic clinics and no first responders. They desperately need first responder training and basic EMT equipment. Penn Care also continued the donation by filling the ambulance with medical supplies. If you have any interest in repurposing used EMT equipment, Cat Cay Medical Clinic Foundation would be honored to accept charitable donations in support of their project and the people of the Bahamas. Please contact Cat Cay Medical Clinic Foundation’s Director Dr. Kevin Hutton to make arrangements for donations.
