BILOXI, Miss. (NNS) -- Sailors and Project HOPE volunteers from
USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) reconstructed a Hurricane Katrina-damaged
garage here and made it into a fully operational primary care
clinic Sept. 17.
The group used donated supplies as well as scattered debris to
rebuild the roof and walls of the facility and then separated the
room into sections to promote patient privacy.
"We came to the area because we learned there was a great need
for medical care here," said Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Dorrance, Comfort's
assistant H-1 division head. "We were lucky enough to locate this

leaving behind this facility as well as all of the donated medical
"Most importantly, we got something started here. They will have
somewhere they can go to receive medical treatment so they can feel
better and start rebuilding their lives."
