RESTON, Va., April 9, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — A 30-member medical team from Virginia-based AMI Expeditionary Healthcare LLC is en route to the Caribbean island of St. Maarten to assist coronavirus victims at the urgent request of the Dutch government.
AMI is airlifting 6 ICU physicians, 6 nurses, 6 certified nursing assistants, 2 respiratory therapists, 3 paramedics, 3 case workers and 2 project managers. They are due to arrive on Wednesday.
AMI’s effort will staff a mobile ICU and medical equipment arriving from the Netherlands including ICU beds, ventilators, test kits and pharmaceutical drugs.
