A state-of-the-art anaesthetic machine, valued at over $3.5 million, has been handed over to the Mandeville Regional Hospital, in Manchester, by the Rotary Club of Mandeville.
Making the presentation on January 23, President of the Club, McClooney Blair, said in its drive to serve the community, the Club has used local fund-raising ventures, and help from its international partners, to acquire medical equipment to boost service delivery at the hospital.
“This is to ensure that the Mandeville Regional Hospital is well equipped to deal with patient care. And, although we are faced with daunting economic prospects, we proceed with our project, and with the help of Rotary International and the Rotary Club of Cape Coral, we are able to hand over this state-of-the-art equipment, and I assure you that before the Rotary Year ends, we will hand over more medical equipment to this hospital,” Mr. Blair said.
Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, Paulette Elliot, said that the Rotarians have put the institution in a position to treat patients with the latest medical technology available.
“You have worked hard for this, and I want to thank you for your continued friendship and partnership. This equipment will be most beneficial in the delivery of health care at this hospital, and we can now boast that all our theatres are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. We are better positioned to deliver quality health care to our patients,” Miss Elliot said.
The Rotary Club of Mandeville will also stage a Valentine event on February 14, in aid of the Mandeville Regional Hospital.
