Statement from Ramani Peruvemba M.D., President of the Maryland Society of Anesthesiologists (MSA):
On behalf of the MSA, I am proud to have been part of the joint collaborative humanitarian mission involving MSA member William Chester M.D. and the Paul Chester Children’s Hope Foundation (PCCHF), Governor of Maryland Lawrence J. Hogan, Delegate Nic Kipke, and the Maryland Departments of Health and General Services to secure and coordinate the donation of 50 ventilators from the State of Maryland to support patients in critical need of care in the Ukraine.
The MSA echoes the importance and good will stated in the Governor’s announcement:

The conflict in the Ukraine has created a great humanitarian crisis, and we are pleased at how quickly this effort came together. We thank Dr. Chester, the Governor, his Administration, and Delegate Kipke for their fast action and commitment to patient care at home and abroad.
