The medical team from the United States decided to pay an impromptu visit to the Mackay
Hospital after having touched down in Taipei less than 24 hours ago, reports said Sunday.
Five experts in the six-member U.S. group arrived along with President Ma Ying-jeou late Saturday evening to help treat patients who suffered severe burns last month in a water park disaster in New Taipei.
The five medical experts are Stephen Maxwell Milner, director of the Johns Hopkins Burn Center; Christina L. Catlett, attending physician in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Denver Lough; plastic and reconstructive surgery resident at Johns Hopkins Hospital; Linda Ware, clinical social work/therapist; and therapist Theresa A. Lynch. [FULL STORY]
