ICBL donates to QEH

8/27/2010

IN SPITE of the recent distractions, it is good to see that the people of Barbados are still supporting the islandís premier health care institution.

This is the word from CEO, Dexter James who was speaking at the presentation of an undisclosed amount of money from the Insurance Corporation of Barbados Limited (ICBL) to the hospital yesterday in their boardroom.

In thanking the ICBL for their continued support, he said that it illustrated that people still had confidence in public health in the island and more specifically, in the QEH.

Dr. Chaynie Williams, Head of the Accident and Emergency (A & E) Department of the hospital said that the money would go towards their A & E Dinner and Awards Ceremony due to take place on Saturday.

James stated that earlier the hospital also received a donation of surgical, examination and vinyl gloves worth US$22 000 from BioMedical International Corporation out of Miami.

He added that they welcome any more donations that companies, individuals or others are willing to make towards the QEH because it would help to enhance the development of services that they offer.

Vicki Olton, Marketing and Corporate Communications Assistant at ICBL said that their organisation is committed towards helping to improve the health care facilities on the island so that the people of Barbados can be provided with the best care possible and their donation was one step towards this process.

In the past, they have also donated an ambulance, ophthalmology equipment and plants to help beautify the hospital.

The A & E are celebrating 20 years of service in the island with a week of activities, which began on Sunday with a church service at St. Patrickís Cathedral. The highlight of the event will be the awards on Saturday and the week will conclude with a picnic for A& E staff and their family the next day. (PJT)
