Mission Statement

Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach responds to the sick, poor and needy through a medical equipment and supply recovery and distribution program, education and awareness opportunities and cross cultural mission experiences.

Description

Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach was organized in 2002 as a humanitarian effort, working with health care organizations to recover and responsibly redistribute medical equipment and supplies to people in need around the world.

This program addresses the excess in the American healthcare industry and educates those involved on the unmet medical needs worldwide.

Our program works with healthcare providers to redirect usable items destined for landfills and make them available to hospitals and clinics in the developing world. Today Mission Outreach has two warehouses, 51 hospital and 18 clinic partners throughout Illinois & Wisconsin.

Highlights & Accomplishments:

• More than $14 million of usable medical equipment and supplies have been received from hospitals, clinics, nursing facilities, manufacturers, and distributors from several states including Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri.

• Access to quality healthcare was improved in more than 50 countries around the world including: Antigua, Belize, Cambodia, China, Columbia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Ghana, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Mongolia, Morocco, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Philippines, Russia, Suriname, Tanzania, Trinidad & Tobago, Ukraine, United States, and Vietnam.

• More than 1,200,000 lbs. of usable equipment and supplies were saved from landfills...helping to prevent harmful greenhouse gases from entering our atmosphere.
