Danielle Morel, both doctors attached to the hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20), administer a steroid shot to treat a woman’s torn rotator cuff at a temporary medical treatment site in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Oct. 15, 2019. Comfort is working with health and government partners in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean to provide care on the ship and at a temporary medical treatment site, helping to relieve pressure on national medical systems, including those strained by an increase in cross-border migrants.
