Community Health System and its President and CEO Craig Castro were honored at a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Armenia’s independence for sponsoring medical missions to Armenia.

Ambassador Armen Baibourtian, consul general of the Republic of Armenia, proclaimed Sept. 21, 2021, as an “Appreciation Day” for Community’s “devotion and dedication in support of the Republic of Armenia.” Baibourtian declares in a proclamation: “Over the past six years, Community Health System leadership expanded its mission to serve the underserved population across the globe … and took an active role and supported the humanitarian efforts to Armenia during the 44-day war in 2020 perpetrated by Azeri aggression.”

$1 Million in Support

Community has provided more than $1 million in financial and in-kind support for six medical missions to Armenia. Such support provides doctors, medical equipment and supplies that go primarily to rural areas with little access to healthcare services, says Apkarian, who’s also Community’s vice president of physician and international health relations.

Apkarian has led groups of physicians, dentists and nurses to remote areas of the country to deliver medical care as well as IV pumps, blood pressure cuffs, glucose monitors, surgical scalpels, pediatric scales, portable ultrasound machines and small electrocardiogram machines that can hook up to laptop computer monitors and deliver results to cardiac specialists elsewhere.

Speaking from Armenia this week where he was on another medical mission, Apkarian said, “I have received such tremendous support over the years from Community … Yes, we’re local and a local non-profit, but we do much more than that. With our international patient services program and these missions, we are focused on doing good will around the world, too.”
