This past winter, the spread of the Zika virus became a top priority for Operation Blessing in Central America. During a surge of Zika cases that included pregnant women, Operation Blessing needed a way to screen unborn children for microcephaly and fetal brain defects – two possible outcomes for babies of Zika victims. Using ultrasound equipment from MedCorp LLC, a Tampa-based ultrasound wholesaler, Operation Blessing was able to monitor the health of unborn children whose mothers had been diagnosed with the Zika virus.

Operation Blessing is an international aid organization that responds to humanitarian crises around the world. They recently followed the call of humanitarian aid to Central America where they were met with a population stricken sick from Zika. Working in partnership with the Operation Blessing’s team, MedCorp’s Ultrasound Consultant, Glenn Josephik, immediately choose the right OB-GYN ultrasound machines to meet the needs of the Central American hospitals and high risk pregnant patients. Josephik also facilitated the immediate shipment of these ultrasounds from Florida to Central America and they were put to use the very next day.

MedCorp provided life-saving equipment with speed and accuracy. By providing Operation Blessing immediate service and overnight cross-continental shipping on the appropriate ultrasound machines, the team at Operation Blessing was able to monitor the health of unborn children at high risk of life-threatening birth defects due to their mothers Zika infection.

“We were greatly pleased by the customer service provided by MedCorp as well as the price and quality of the ultrasound machines. We would happily do business with MedCorp again,” said Operation Blessing’s Angela Dart, Manager of International Health Programs.
