PRESS RELEASE – 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.
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 condition 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 Hospital Executive Director was full of praise for the generosity and extremely quick response of CFL to the request.
