HSHS Mission Outreach
HSHS Mission Outreach is a medical surplus recovery organization developed by the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis to improve healthcare for the poor by collecting, repairing, packaging, and distributing medical supplies and equipment to more than 530 hospitals and clinics operating in 95 countries worldwide. The medical supplies are recovered from over 100 hospitals, 18 clinics, manufacturers and corporations throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri and Kansas. Since 2002, HSHS Mission Outreach has provided an environmentally-sound service, caring for those in need through recovery and redistribution of $92 million worth of life-saving medical supplies that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. This initiative has made a profound difference in the countless lives of others.
