Vertix Health Charities Raises Over $50K for Medical Clinics in Africa

Vertix Health Charities — an organization established by Vertix Builders, a Colorado-based culture-focused construction company — recently raised more than $50,000 during its recent “Curling for a Cause” event. The money will go to further support the construction of medical clinics in Africa, as well as supplying the clinics with important equipment and medical supplies.

“Our first clinic in Sierra Leone is already half completed, and we’re sending out our first shipping container now,”  said Ted Laszlo, who along with Ryan Bonner and Tom Lough founded Vertix Builders in 2014 as a general contractor specializing in the healthcare industry.  “There is a dire need for improved healthcare facilities and basic infrastructure in countless parts of the world, and Vertix Health Charities will play a small but important role in bringing construction and medical expertise to some of these regions. Many medical facilities are in a state of near collapse and residents of these remote villages must make a perilous journey of up to eight hours to reach the nearest hospitals for any serious medical care.”

Part of the organization’s work includes:

  • Building new and renovating existing clinics.
  • Strengthening the infrastructure of the existing healthcare facilities.
  • Supply essential medical equipment and medicine by regularly stocking clinics with necessary medical supplies.

The Vertix team will provide construction expertise and draw upon their vast network of healthcare experts to support the cause.
