Earlier this week, the hospital ship Comfort wrapped up its visit to Haiti, the first stop of the seven-nation Continuing Promise 2009 deployment. Continuing Promise 2009 is a four-month humanitarian and civic assistance mission to Latin America and the Caribbean.

Here are some Haiti CP09 medical numbers:

Patients treated: 6,731

Patient encounters: 30,586

Surgeries conducted: 161

Animals treated: 2,354

Prescriptions filled: 15,504

Job well done to the men and women of the Comfort. You can follow the Comfort’s Mission Commander’s Blog here and Southcom’s Continuing Promise 09 page here.
