Pine­hill do­nates $5000 to the Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal Pe­di­atric Ward

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Pine­hill and its lo­cal distrib­u­tor Peter & Company Ltd. com­mit­ted to a do­na­tion of $5,000.00 to the Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal Pe­di­atric Ward in cel­e­bra­tion of the 15th Pine­hill Fun­walk Event, which was held in Au­gust this year. Pine­hill and Peter & Company Ltd. were in­deed de­lighted to make this pre­sen­ta­tion. As part of their com­mit­ment, Pine­hill Juices and Be­bin Baby Di­a­pers will also be given to the Pe­di­atric Ward ev­ery month for the next 6 months.

Pine­hill Brand Man­ager Shari Popo stated “Chil­dren are at the heart of the Pine­hill Brand and we do rec­og­nize that a hos­pi­tal ad­mis­sion can be an emo­tional and stress­ful time for young ones and can also af­fect many as­pects of fam­ily life. As a Brand and Business, we do hope that this do­na­tion in some way of­fers as­sis­tance by way of re­fresh­ments and baby sup­plies for young pa­tients dur­ing their hos­pi­tal stay.”

In attendance at the brief prize giv­ing cer­e­mony, were the Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Hos­pi­tal, Mrs. Jeanette Hughes, Nurs­ing Di­rec­tor Ruth Ade­sanya, Nurses Natalie Pre­ville and Ce­celia Good­man.

The Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal was elated to re­ceive the do­na­tion and ac­cord­ing to Mrs. Hughes “the Hos­pi­tal func­tions in a re­source­con­strained en­vi­ron­ment, with many op­er­a­tional chal­lenges, part­ner­ships with the pri­vate sec­tor con­trib­ute sig­nif­i­cantly to the ease of de­liv­er­ing qual­ity care and ser­vices to our pa­tients, par­tic­u­larly the young and most vul­ner­a­ble ones.”

The sup­plies will be used pri­mar­ily for the pa­tients on the Pe­di­atric Ward and Neonatal Unit.
