A gift to Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal from CFL

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Ju­nior doc­tors on call at Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal (VH) can rest a lit­tle eas­ier in their sleep­ing quarters thanks to a gift of fans from Con­sol­i­dated Foods Ltd (CFL). The gift was pro­vided to the unit in re­sponse to a re­quest from hos­pi­tal man­age­ment cit­ing con­cerns about heat and mos­qui­toes given the age of the build­ing where the doc­tors are lo­cated.

Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of VH Jeanette Hughes says “Ju­nior doc­tors pro­vide an in­valu­able ser­vice by stay­ing in house to see to pa­tients’ needs overnight. The ju­nior doc­tors’ sleep­ing quarters are sit­u­ated in one of the older build­ings of the hos­pi­tal fa­cil­ity with limited pos­si­bil­ity of ren­o­va­tion or in­stal­la­tion of air con­di­tion­ing units. Within re­cent months the threat of Chikun­gunya has been a real con­cern and some ad­di­tional fans will go a long way to make the quarters more com­fort­able for the team.”

Work­ing with one of its Mega J fan sup­pli­ers out of the USA, CFL was able to re­spond very quickly to the re­quest, donat­ing a quan­tity of twelve fans. The company un­der­stands the grav­ity of the sit­u­a­tion es­pe­cially given the im­pact that Chikun­gunya has been hav­ing on the pop­u­la­tion and the work place.

The Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor was full of praise for the gen­eros­ity and ex­tremely quick re­sponse of CFL to the re­quest.
