Our field trauma hospital has now begun receiving patients injured during the battle to liberate Mosul.

See live updates from our team in Iraq as they begin to receive patients from Mosul and surrounding areas.

Samaritan’s Purse has sent an emergency field hospital equipped with an emergency room, two operating rooms, nearly 50 beds, and more than 70 staff to the Plains of Nineveh. We are treating injuries from gunfire, mortar rounds, and other explosives as many dozens are harmed daily in the conflict between Iraqi and coalition forces and ISIS militants in Mosul.

Particular needs include trauma/general surgeons, anesthesiologists, emergency medicine physicians, ward physicians, operating room nurses, intensive care unit nurses, laboratory technicians, and scrub technicians.
