Due to confusion with the names of the two entities, 'Global Flying Hospitals' and 'The Flying Hospital', Global Flying Hospitals is now shedding light to demonstrate that no relationship, connection or cross purpose exists.

Global Flying Hospitals (GFH) is a charity organization with its US Region Head Office in Palm Beach Florida, and its Asia Region Head Office in Macau SAR, China. It has a highly focused and globally wide vision of assisting developing countries to become self-sufficient and sustainable with healthcare for their citizens who lack or cannot afford medical care. This vision encompasses the building of a fleet or aircraft comprising four Boeing 747's, refurbished as Teaching Hospitals and each designed for a group of differing medical specialisms, four Hercules C130's ferrying high-tech field medical clinics, medical equipment, emergency modular housing, sanitation, water purification and solar power equipment. Under-girding this 'fleet' is the provision of four Pilatus PC12 single engine turbine craft, for micro-insertion of medical professionals, patient evacuation and rendezvous of supplies or patients with the Boeing's and Hercules. A special MediVac helicopter division is under plans.

Global Flying Hospitals is creating a new world paradigm, being a comprehensive new model for humanitarian healthcare, that totally supersedes the old band-aid methods and thinking of the past, caused by a lack of resources and dis-interest by the world towards developing countries.

GFH is also a vital player for the achievement of the United Nations 2015 Millennium Goals.

Since 9/11, the world has undergone a huge transformation of historic proportions, such as Geo-economic shifts, the rise of China, the financial crisis, the mounting debt of nations, destruction of the ecology, pollution concerns, global warming and repetitious natural disasters.

Global Flying Hospitals is the solution to the humanitarian medical challenges of this now uncertain and ailing world.

The Flying Hospital
The Flying Hospital is a 36 six year old aircraft; a refurbished 1974 Lockheed 1011, that is the product of the organization, “Operation Blessing International”, founded by Pat Robertson, of the 700 Club fame. A company was formed, The Flying Hospital Inc. to operate and manage the aircraft, receive donations and supports etc. It was designed pre 9/11 and was simply meant for launching various medical missions, for one and two week time-slots. Admirable work was conducted and thousands of medical procedures were undertaken, during its initial tour to a number of countries.

Grounded since 2001
The aircraft was grounded in 2001 and mothballed in the desert, in Tuscon, where it has sat for these many years and is now nearing obsolescence. Although it is possible to resurrect the aircraft, it is old and not many Lockheed's fly, thereby making parts procurement very difficult and costly. Mr. Bill Horan, President of Operation Blessing states: “I don't see it as impossible that this plane might fly again, but it is very unlikely for a variety of reasons. That being said, we continue to try and find a good home for this plane."

Global Flying Hospitals commends the efforts of The Flying Hospital, as it served humanity well. However, there is no relationship, connections or cross purposes in either organization.

Only one other such organization exists, that being the excellent charity Orbis, the flying eye hospital and its DC10. Any other such group purporting to be using The Flying Hospital Inc, its website, the actual Lockheed aircraft and even endeavoring to fund-raise by accepting charitable donation; is at this date, a fabrication and illegal.

Some facts and statements in the Press Release were gleaned from the Arizona Daily Star online newspaper.
