Hurricane Victims Need Your Help
With Houston grappling with the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and the state of Florida girding for Hurricane Irma, disaster response professionals from Massachusetts General Hospital have deployed to both areas to aid in relief efforts.
One Mass General team is assisting with care at Houston’s San Jose Clinic, a safety-net clinic providing medical services to those who struggle the most with accessing care. Although the flood waters have receded in Houston, the city’s healthcare infrastructure was battered by the epic storm and is expected to face significant challenges in the months ahead. Meanwhile, with Hurricane Irma expected to make landfall in Florida within days, a second Mass General team is on alert in Georgia and awaiting further assignment.
Working in collaboration with partner organizations and federal agencies, Mass General disaster responders have deep experience in providing aid in this country and around the world.
