Three medical professionals associated with Norton Brownsboro Hospital are leaving for Haiti

A Message from Douglas A. Winkelhake, president, Norton Brownsboro Hospital:

Three medical professionals associated with Norton Brownsboro Hospital are part of an eight-person team leaving for Haiti this morning on a relief mission.

The group includes Ron Crafton, M.D., Kentuckiana Emergency Physicians, who practices at Norton Brownsboro Hospital, Norton Audubon Hospital and Norton Hospital; Jean Broaddus, R.N., assistant nurse manager, Norton Brownsboro Emergency Department; and Michael Wayman, R.N., staff nurse, Norton Brownsboro Emergency Department.

They are part of a group being coordinated by Christian relief organizations Neighborhood Engagement and Haiti Gospel Mission. The group includes four medical professionals and four people who will help rebuild a pastor’s home. Randy Stewart, director of Neighborhood Engagement, is coordinating the group’s trip.

The medical professionals will work at two medical clinics near Port-au-Prince, one in Despinos and one in Leogene. They expect to be dressing wounds, treating infections, prescribing medications and antibiotics, providing physical therapy – broadly, follow-up care for those injured in the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake.

Each of the team members is motivated by his or her Christian faith and a desire to help those in need. They will return from Haiti on May 6.

Some of the team members plan to post photos and blog entries here.

Please join me in thanking Dr. Crafton, Jean and Michael for their selfless devotion to humanitarian service and in wishing them a safe and productive time in Haiti.
