Nashville hospital expands its medical reach
A group of 16 staff members from the Nashville-based Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt recently took their skills to Guatemala City, Guatemala, where they performed surgeries on children with facial birth defects or head, face or neck growths. The trip, hosted by the Shalom Foundation, a nonprofit that provides financial support and physical assistance for underprivileged children and their families, is the fourth for staff members from the Nashville hospital. Now, the hospital and the Shalom Foundation are looking for ways to provide a stable medical environment for the children of Guatemala.
