AdventHealth continues to assist in the relief and recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.

Early today, a private jet owned by an AdventHealth supporter set off from Orlando Executive Airport, carrying nearly 400 pounds of medical liquids, including saline and irrigation fluids, and 150 pounds of emergency drinking water.

The supplies are in the process of being delivered to Hospital Buen Samaritano in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. The timing of this delivery is critical, as the hospital is in great need.

Meanwhile, a team of AdventHealth emergency physicians continued their work on the island Saturday. The doctors have been providing critical care and assistance to local physicians, while also assessing the islands overall health needs.

Additional AdventHealth physicians are expected to travel to Puerto Rico in upcoming days to further the relief efforts.

The physicians will help develop a long-term response plan to provide medical relief to the island.
