Alliance Medical Gas is always striving to build partnerships that can have a radical impact on the medical field. ORBIS International is a nonprofit organization that works in developing countries to save sight. ORBIS prevents and treats blindness through hands-on training, public health education, improved access to quality eye care, advocacy and partnerships with local health care organizations. Their newest endeavor is the rebuilding of the Flying Eye Hospital.  The Flying Eye Hospital brings major operating and teaching space to countries who just don't have them.  The current model is a  converted DC-10 aircraft which has been in service for over two decades. The DC-10 houses a 48 seat classroom used for training, discussions and live broadcasts of surgical procedures being performed in the Flying Eye Hospital operating room.  With the wholesale change of aircraft used by FedEx, comes the need to upgrade to keep up with the updated training the volunteer FedEx pilots are receiving.

 The new, larger MD-10 is the next generation Flying Eye Hospital, donated by FedEx.

As stated in previous posts, Alliance Medical Gas is very proud with our partnership with ORBIS International. We will be donating time an resources to the building and maintenance of the new MD-10 Flying Eye Hospital.  Among the services donated, Alliance will perform a full engineering review.  This Includes review of the engineering drawings and specifications of the hospital modules as it relates to medical gas system, design, connection and function.

Recently our President and Vice President  visited one of ORBIS' manufacturing sites in Vermont.  They took this time to look over the plans and units already manufactured.  Our leaders were fascinated by the intricacy and detail that went into building the plane.  However, they did notice elements of planning and manufacturing that needed improvement.  Mr. Wojcik and Mr. Petell used there knowledge of medical gas and piping systems to provide solutions that will be cost and performance effective.  This is just one example of our engineering review service.  ORBIS will be privy to our leader's expertise both in the completion of the manufacturing stages and the operational stages.
