Sharp NEC Display Solutions is anticipating the launch of the Global Mercy. The leader in projector and display solutions joined forces with Mercy Ships through an equipment donation in 2017. The ship arrived in Antwerp, Belgium where it is being equipped with communication and healthcare technology.
Mercy Ships is an international faith-based organization that uses hospital ships to perform life-changing surgeries. The organization seeks to help build long-term healthcare capacity and systems in the nation it serves.
In addition to monitors and projectors to be installed throughout the ship, Sharp/NEC’s equipment donation also included a wall of displays in the simulation training room, a tool that will assist in providing essential education for nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other healthcare providers around the world.
In the summer of 2021, representatives from Mercy Ships celebrated the transfer of the newly constructed hospital ship from shipyard to owners. A significant milestone for Mercy Ships, this event marked the end of the ship’s construction and its readiness to sail onward to the equipping phase. Once fully equipped, the Global Mercy will set to sail to its first stop in Senegal in early 2022.
