Care for Patients
The scope of the research foundation goes beyond a localized effort; beyond the clinic, the physicians, the patients and the staff into a realm of healthcare that is often times overlooked and untouched by healthcare professionals in the United States.
Dr. Hong Tek and Dr. Kyle Etzkorn as well as a few of our staff members went to Phnom Penh, Cambodia to set up two state-of-the-art endoscopic procedure rooms at the Sihanouk Hospital. Along with the donations from Olympus of North America and Baptist Health Systems, they were able to provide hands-on mentoring, teaching and equipment to a community that has been fraught with turmoil.

The triage area is a waiting room outside of the hospital under a canopy because there was not enough room to accommodate all of the patients needing digestive care. There have been many success stories about patients that have come out of the project.
Our team extended our global reach when Dr. Tek and Dr. Etzkorn taught in Cambodia in January 2014. Angie Hull and Tiffany Burch also assisted in the training and setting up the equipment in Cambodia.
