As part of the EMAS new faith initiatives, Drs. Stephen and Stephanie Milone led a team to visit the Herbertpur Hospital in India in April 2015. This hospital is part of the Emmanuel Hospital Association in India. The objective was to explore opportunities to teach there. The hospital is located near the banks of the Asan river which lies between the Shivalik and Himalaya mountain ranges.
Dr. Stephanie and Dr. Stephen Milone are two family physicians who currently work in Orangeville, Ontario. They have a broad scope of practice including ER, Anesthesia, inpatients, palliative and academic medicine. They feel fortunate to be blessed with so much and feel it is their calling to use their skills and talents to help others. They wanted this experience to be a family one and thus were accompanied by their three children and hoped that this mission trip would spark that same need to do good in this world in them. It most certainly did and the children have expressed a desire to return in order to help children with special needs.
The EMAS India team taught new skills and provided medical education for local trainee and practicing physicians so that they can continue to provide the best care in this rural area. They worked alongside these hardworking physicians to help with their heavy workload and we hope this will be an ongoing relationship between EMAS, the Orangeville medical team and Herbertpur Christian Hospital. Drs. Stephen and Stephanie Milone will continue to mentor and train national healthcare professionals, enhance their clinical skills and improve their ability to deliver compassionate medical care. They explored the possibility of integrating mission medical experience into the training of Canadian doctors that they supervise. Join with us in supporting this brand new effort as EMAS seeks to teach and heal in a Christ-like manner. Planning is underway to return to this region.
