MedShare’s Western Region opened in 2008 and since then we have shipped forty-foot containers of life-changing medical aid to hospitals in the developing world and equipped hundreds of medical teams as well as safety-net clinics throughout California. We have established partnerships with the leading hospitals in Northern California and prevented hundreds of tons of medical supplies from going to area landfills. Here, you will find information on our facility location, how to support our mission (you can volunteer or donate), news on recent and upcoming projects and events, hospital partners, and our staff. Thank you for your support of MedShare's mission.
