Operation Blue Falcon: Improving Health Access in Jordan

Commitment by

Medtronic, Inc.

In 2014, Medtronic committed to address the heightened demand for health services and the demands on the Jordanian healthcare sector to deliver quality services as result of the Syrian refugee crisis. Medtronic will provide direct support to the Ministry of Health to enhance the capacity of cardiology and neuro/spine surgery services in Jordan. To do so, Medtronic staff will assess gaps and bottle necks at Al Bashir hospital, the largest hospital in Jordan in terms of beds, to improve efficiency as the hospital admits a growing number of patients. In addition, Medtronic will provide medical equipment such as cardiac stents, multichannel ECG recorders, and bone drills, as well as renovate the ER triage area at Al Bashir Hospital, and provide medical fellowships focused primarily on neuro/spine, cardiology and endocrinology. In partnership with Americares and Jordan Health Aid Society, Medtronic will also provide direct support to communities in Jordan which require medical assistance.
