$500,000 Medical Equipment Donation to
Local Community in San Felipe, Baja, Mexico
(PRWEB) - Wednesday, Apr 18 2007, 4:35am
ORIMtec, Playa de Oro, Lions Club team up to provide $500K of
needed medial equipment to San Felipe Medical Community.
Playa de Oro resident, Daniel Slepian, recognized a need three
years ago for medical equipment in San Felipe. Dan, along with
his brother Richard, owners and founders of ORIMtec (a
Neurophysological Interoperative Monitoring company), knew of
functional medical equipment in hospitals across central and
northern California that were being upgraded. With that in mind,
Dan set his sights on procuring three truck loads and over
$500,000 worth of diverse equipment to provide to the local San
Felipe medical community.
Dan acquired an operating room microscope, anesthesia machine,
surgical fiber optic head lamps, two ICU beds, and multiple
hospital beds, gurneys and other miscellaneous medical
equipment. Attaining the equipment was one thing, picking it up,
storing and transporting was another.
He approached Bruce Parkman, PM&D Developer of Playa de Oro and
Playa San Rafael, who agreed to help. Having already donated
tens of thousands of dollars to the medical community, Bruce
volunteered to pay for the storage and transporting of the
equipment to the border. Experiencing frustrating delays at the
border, Dan finally approached the Lions Club of San Felipe for
assistance. With the help of the Lions Club, members Gary Dilly,
Sam Grubb and Scott Parkman were able to accomplish the mission.
Sam provided three trucks from his company, San Felipe Storage,
to bring the equipment across the border and into San Felipe.
Dilly, Grubb, and Parkman also donated employee labor to
distribute equipment throughout the medical community. At 900
lbs. per bed, this was no easy job! There is one more load
waiting in San Luis Obispo with storage and transportation
charges again being paid by PM&D. A big thank you from all
residents of San Felipe should go to Dan and Richard Slepian.
They are truly givers and the amount of work and persuasion it
took for Dan to achieve this goal was truly monumental.
Collectively, the Slepians, the Lions Club combined with Dilly,
Grub and the Parkmans, have made San Felipe a better place for
us all to live and to receive medical care. And, overall, a
safer place to be.
