About CARE CAMPAIGN

NHIT, in partnership with Sprint, Healthcare Ready, and The Primary Care Association, launched the CARE Campaign to support Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Our mission: provide emergency power, medical supplies, communications, and telemedicine support to restore critical health services.

  • • 80 two-way radios
  • • 150 Smart Phones
  • • 12 INSPIRA Health Centers
  • • 6 SatCom internet relays
  • • “Clinic in a Box” kits
