It has been a long time coming - But today I can officially announce: WE ARE MEDICAL!
18 months of hard work - Policies & Procedures Written, Medical Director & Nurses Hired, OSHA/HIPPA compliancies, CLIA waiver obtained, Supplies ordered, Staff increased, Ultrasounds machines purchased, Ultrasound Personnel Trained and the list goes on...
$160,000.00 donated designated for Medical Conversion
$6000.00 remodel & equipping of Ultrasound Room at the Center
$135,000.00 Mobile Medical Unit purchased from Save the Storks
Thank you to everyone that has contributed to this effort. And a special thank you to Save The Storks. Save The Storks is the ministry that has helped Heartbeats make all of this a reality. From designing our Mobile Medical Unit, training us for the medical conversion to finding funding for us from across the country, STS has been a great partnership. (For more info. about STS, visit savethestorks.com) Most recently, STS sent us a love offering specifically for showering our staff with love. We opted for a day at the Spa and lunch together. It was a much needed day of rest. And boy was it refreshing! Just look at us, we are glowing :) Thanks Storks!
The Great News: We are already seeing fruits from our efforts. Last week, we had an abortion-minded client choose life after seeing her child via Ultrasound. Praise God! A great acknowledgement that all the hard work was worth it! STS tells us that statistically, 4 out of 5 women who enter a Stork Bus choose life for their baby. With our MMU arriving next month, we are excited to share Free Ultrasounds with the community and are ready to serve our Lord by helping women and men make life-affirming choices. Please pray that many more will be reached with this life-saving technology both at the Center and around the community with our Mobile Medical Unit. STAY TUNED!
