Christmas Comes Early to the Oderlies Department of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Compliments of CaribSupply
Best known for providing industrial, medical and specialty gases in the Caribbean for over fifty years, CaribSupply (Barbados) Inc. recently joined the list of philanthropic donors to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital through the donation of a Hisense refrigerator to the Hospital’s Orderlies Department.
Mr. Clyde Sobers, General Manager of CaribSupply (Barbados) Inc. in his address reminisced about the long and storied 50 plus years of partnership between the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and CaribSupply (Barbados) Inc. Sobers stated that CaribSupply provides an essential service to the QEH through the delivery of oxygen and other gases critical to the hospital’s function.
Expounding on the partnership between the two entities, Mr Sobers indicated that “in the event of a national disaster, the QEH and CaribSupply (Barbados) Inc. have signed a Memorandum of Understanding which identifies the QEH as the first and primary customer for the provision of oxygen and other gases.”
Additional to the MOU between the 2 entities, Sobers noted that CaribSupply (Barbados) Inc., has also embarked on a neighbourhood programme through which all QEH staff members will receive a preferred discounted rate on items purchased from CaribSupply. Stating that he thought of QEH staff as essential partners, Sobers appealed to other private sector organizations to recognize the value, hard work and dedication of QEH staff as well.
Mr. Sobers concluded his remarks by inviting Michael Miller and Dennis Turton, Truck Drivers to present Mr. Franklyn Alleyne, Senior Orderly (a.g) with the refrigerator on behalf of Caribsupply (Barbados) Inc. Mr. Miller and Mr. Turton who frequently work directly with the department, have forged a strong working relationship with the department’s staff, and as such, were especially pleased to present the Orderlies Department with the new Hisense refrigerator.
