GE Health­care

HEAD­QUAR­TERED in Lit­tle Chal­font since 2004, multi­na­tional busi­ness GE Health­care is spon­sor­ing the 999 Ser­vice Per­son­nel Award to help recog­nise and cel­e­brate the tremen­dous con­tri­bu­tion of our lo­cal emer­gency ser­vices.

Kate Lewis of GE Health­care, com­mented: “We are de­lighted to be able to help tell the sto­ries of some of the com­mu­nity’s true he­roes. Th­ese are the peo­ple who work to keep us safe and well on a daily ba­sis. Their ac­tions and ded­i­ca­tion should be an in­spi­ra­tion to us all.”

The com­pany’s Grove Cen­tre site, on White Lion Road, Amer­sham, houses its very own emer­gency ve­hi­cle manned by a crew of vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers. Sev­eral of th­ese same em­ploy­ees are also on standby for the Che­sham and Amer­sham fire ser­vices. Buck­ing­hamshire is home to many of the 1,000 GE Health­care staff who work across three lo­cal sites. Em­ploy­ees reg­u­larly par­tic­i­pate in lo­cal vol­un­teer days and hold events through­out the year, in­clud­ing a fam­ily fun day and fire­works night to raise money for their three se­lected char­i­ties; The PACE Cen­tre, The Chiltern MS Cen­tre and The Hospice of St Fran­cis. World­wide, GE em­ploy­ees de­vote over a mil­lion hours to vol­un­teer­ing ev­ery year.
