Northwell Health Donates Ambulance to Dominican Republic Nonprofit
Story Number is : 032217100
Northwell Health

Northwell Health has donated an ambulance to Fundepaz NYC, a nonprofit run by Father Fernando Echeverri, a parish priest in the Diocese of Rockville Center.

Fundepaz NYC promotes growth and development in Colombia, the Dominican Republic and other Latin American nations through several life-improving initiatives. The ambulance, gifted on March 9, will be sent to Santa Ana parish in Navarrete, Dominican Republic, where it can provide more access to medical care, the nonprofit said.
This is not the first time Northwell Health’s Center for Emergency Medical Services has donated an ambulance to help groups in the Dominican Republic. In 2012, then North Shore-LIJ Health System donated an ambulance to FUPAC, a Dominican Republic nonprofit organization. In 2013, an ambulance with medical supplies and a wheelchair were given to the Leonardo Diaz Foundation for Disabled in San Cristobal with the help of the Ricardo Reyes Ministries in Freeport.

“I am grateful to Northwell Health for allowing myself to work with these nonprofit groups as they help provide essential health care services in the Dominican Republic,” said Rita Obregon, associate director of anatomic pathology at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset who helped organize the ambulance donation. “Northwell Health does not only serve people in the New York area but also, through efforts such as these, helps provide health care beyond our borders.”
