Donation Programs

Medical Surplus Recovery Organizations are sponsored and supported by hospitals and healthcare systems in their communities. 

 

These powerful and long-standing partnerships expand access to health and healing worldwide by donating equipment, devices, consumables, pharmaceuticals, contribute funding, and providing volunteers.  They also offer hospitals important benefits.

Mission Fulfillment  Support health care workers, heal more patients, and strengthen health systems worldwide.

 

Sustainability Integration  Extend equipment life, divert usable products from landfills, demonstrate environmental stewardship, and protect everyone's environment.

 

Employee Engagement  Offer volunteer opportunities and medical mission trip support.

 

Community Benefit  Support community programs, document community, needs assessment, and other program requirements.

Expert Guidance  MSA Accredited MSROs and the MSA offer onboarding programs to meet donor goals and requirements.

Thanks to Ascension Global Mission's generosity and leadership, the MSA has developed a seven-step implementation program, implementation tools, and guidance for health systems seeking to launch a new donation program or improve existing programs.
