Short Story

Ken, a second-generation Jamaican-American, personally experienced the devastating effects of a lack of health care resources that is all too common in underserved communities. When his grandfather passed away in a hospital in Spanish Town, Jamaica, Ken felt the lack of hope that exists in these medical facilities in need. Many times basic supplies are reused because there just are not enough. One stethoscope may be shared among healthcare professionals on an entire floor. Ken was inspired to do something—and so StethoHope was born.

 

Many medical facilities in Jamaica lack the basic supplies needed to provide adequate medical care to their patients—and people are suffering as a result. These communities rely on international donations for medical equipment, some receiving 80% of what they need from these donations. 


That’s where StethoHope comes in. With the introduction of our new Cobb Cardiology stethoscope, we will continue to redistribute the proceeds from sales to provide medical providers worldwide with stethoscopes and other primary medical supplies. When a medical practitioner purchases a stethoscope we put one into the hands of a fellow practitioner who may not otherwise have access to one. We see this transaction not only as a gift of imperative equipment but of hope for medical care providers and their patients in the future.
