DR Health Center
// Heather Williams Katz
Last year, at our health center in the Dominican Republic, we treated an average of over 770 patients each month.
These patients come for general medical consultations, minor emergency services, blood pressure and diabetes screenings, and free medication. We also treat many patients who have wounds on their skin. The majority of these patients have diabetic ulcers or burns from accidents. They come multiple times during the week for sterile dressing changes.
One such patient is José del Rosario. He suffered multiple second-degree burns from a motor vehicle accident. After being in the hospital for one month, he came to our clinic for continued treatment of his burns. He has been coming almost daily for three months and will continue to come until his burns have healed. They are healing and he is so thankful for the care and attention he has received at the health center. He is one of the many patients who have benefited from the care we give. We are thankful that we can share God’s love with people as we minister to them by helping meet their medical needs. ~Heather Williams Katz
