In an effort to support colleagues serving in resource-poor communities
around the world, Atlantic General Hospital partnered with Pittsburgh-based
international medical relief agency Global Links to collect gently worn
scrubs for donation. The scrubs were collected during National Hospital
Week at Atlantic General Hospital and will be shipped to primarily rural
hospitals and clinics in Latin America and the Caribbean where the need
for basic supplies is great.
