The male ward at the Black River Hospital in St. Elizabeth has been remodelled at a cost of $1.5 million, with the contribution of the Friends of the Black River Hospital.
At an opening ceremony on Thursday May 21, President of the group, Eleanor Evans, said they were able to accomplish the project through co-operation from members and donors. “We are committed to ensure that this facility offers the best care possible, and we strive always to go the extra mile to achieve our aim,” she said.
The ward received extensive refurbishing with new fixtures installed, and furniture items added. In expressing her appreciation, Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, Diana Brown, stressed that “your service to this hospital is invaluable. You have dedicated your time and finances to its development, and we are just thankful for everything”.
Guest speaker and retired Manager of the Manchester Health Department, Yvonne Pitter, said the Friends of the Black River Hospital have demonstrated that volunteerism is alive in Jamaica.
“This you have done and proved, year in and year out. And your work is contributing to a more customer friendly environment, and better health care delivery,” Miss. Pitter said.
