Cooper University Hospital will send a relief medical team to Haiti. The mission will be headed by Anthony Mazzarelli, M.D., the Director of Emergency Medicine at Cooper. Dr. Maz is also an attorney practicing with Long Marmero & Associates.
Two Cooper nurses have already been deployed as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) operation. The rest of the medical team will go to Haiti within the next few days.
“Haiti already had a significant need of medical resources before the earthquake hit,” said Mazzarelli. “The earthquake has now increased that need exponentially. We are in contact with the rescue teams on the ground who are assessing the specific medical needs and safety concerns for relief personnel trying to deploy.”
