They are devices of heavy consumption, both in our hospital and in Columbus, and we urgently need them to be destined for patients. Just as we need every support that allows us to face the costs for equipment, the upgrading of beds, the increase in qualified nursing and medical personnel. “

At a time like this, I am sure that everyone will be able to do their part. “
