Orthopaedic Relief Services International
Moved by photos and videos of the devastation after the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Dr. Ronald Israelski, an orthopaedic surgeon from the Hudson Valley and President and Founder of the not-for-profit organization, Orthopaedic Relief Services International (ORSI), felt compelled to help. Dr. Israelski had long dedicated his time toward orthopaedic programmatic development for large hospitals and charitable work at clinics in NYC and the Hudson Valley. Haiti was in dire need of medical supplies and assistance. Dr. Israelski traveled to Haiti shortly after the earthquake and has since returned many times.
HUEH – (Hopital Universite D’Etat d’Haiti) is the largest hospital in Haiti. It is also the only university hospital and home to every medical and surgical residency program in the entire country. Since the devastating earthquake, problems have been largely compounded. This is the largest public health facility in all of Haiti and desperately needs equipment, supplies, deployment of surgical teams and support. Our goal is to procure clinical, educational and infrastructural support for Haiti’s largest hospital (HUEH). Procuring the funding to accomplish this goal is the first priority of ORSI.
