SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Jan. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — NBC News, echoing similar reports by independent media reported that the COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed regional hospitals particularly in the states of Florida and Texas. Per the Department of Health and Human Services, Florida is home to ten facilities that have suffered over fifty weeks at over patient capacity during the previous twelve months. Surety One, Inc. has given support to two severely affected non-profit medical facilities in effort to ease the burden on these vital health care providers.
Surety One, Inc. has delivered donations totaling over ten thousand dollars to be allocated evenly between the Memorial Health Care System and the Baptist Health Care Foundation. Pursuant to Surety One, Inc.’s agreement with the Poindexter Surety Group charitable alliance, chief executive officer Constantin Poindexter matched the corporate gifts from personal funds. Said Poindexter, "In addition to preexisting uninsured patient difficulties which is near crisis in Florida, these hospitals have been particularly strained by the pandemic. I am fortunate to be economically able to contribute to the relief of those that are less fortunate than I. As a society we need to come together and help each other get through this rough spot. COVID has been just devastating to so many people. These two non-profits are on the front lines, battling it out on our behalf. They really do deserve our gratitude and whatever support that we can offer."
