Samaritan’s Purse Responding in the Bahamas After Hurricane Dorian’s Deadly Assault

Samaritan’s Purse is now operating their Emergency Field Hospital in Freeport on Grand Bahama, treating patients for a variety of injuries, illnesses, and other medical issues.

In the wake of Hurricane Dorian, they airlifted the mobile facility along with a large medical team at the request of the World Health Organization and the Bahamas government.

The 40-bed hospital can receive up to 100 patients daily and features an operating room with capacity for 10 surgeries per day, as well as an obstetrics ward with delivery room.

Samaritan’s Purse has also flown over many tons of emergency relief items, including heavy-duty shelter plastic and water filters.
