- Global Health Outreach
With the exception of 1 Surgical Tech and 1 Circulating Nurse, this trip is now closed. Please explore our other trip opportunities at www.ghotrips.org.
Join us as we serve the underprivileged in Cotuí. It is the capital of the province of Sanchez Ramirez in the center of the Dominican Republic. It is approximately 62 miles north from the capital of Santo Domingo and is one of the oldest cities in the Dominican Republic. Our Global Health Outreach team will serve the impoverished by providing them with surgical and spiritual care.
After much prayerful consideration by the leadership team of our national partner, Oasis Church, we will be providing general surgery at Hospital Inmaculada Concepción de Cotuí. We will perform various surgeries including hernia’s, gallbladders, etc.
Morning devotion and prayer will serve to daily prepare our team for God’s work and help to encourage each other in our faith. The evening devotion time is set up for testimonies and “God sightings” that help us all understand how God is working. These are times in which we can rejoice together. We hope you will pray about joining the work God has planned for this team!
This small team needs General Surgeons, Anesthesia Providers, Surgical Techs, OR Nurses / Circulators and a PACU Nurse.
You are advised to be vaccinated against Hepatitis A and B and typhoid. Malaria is usually only present along the border with Haiti, and anti-malaria pills are not normally needed.
