This year's extremely active flu season has caused a surge in patient loads at medical facilities across the United States. Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia has responded to the need for additional capacity by calling in the Carolinas Med-1 Mobile Emergency Room. This self-contained facility includes a 53 ft ER trailer with a custom boot that allows it to be complexed with Western Shelters.
Jorge Ortiz has been with Western Shelter for five years, and currently serves as our Sales Manager for Latin America and the Caribbean. He is based out of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and was personally impacted by Hurricane Maria. We greatly admire his work ethic and the commitment to his community that he displayed in the wake of the storm as he continued to serve his customers without reliable electricity or communications. It was only natural that we would feature him in our first team member profile.
Western Shelter just completed a UN Level II Mobile Field Hospital that will be shipping to Uganda through a U.S. foreign military sales program. The hospital itself will be composed of Gatekeeper Shelters that have been connected to form a larger complex, along with upgraded containerized shelters that will be used to support the hospital staff with power generation, a commercial kitchen, and hygiene facilities.
Fall is officially here, and Western Shelter is kicking off the season with a great deal! Building on the success of our summer trailer special, we are once again offering upgraded cargo trailers with an added value. On top of an excellent starting price, trailers ordered this fall will come with a free awning to keep you dry during the wet months ahead.
