Senior medical officer Dr Natalie Whylie demonstrates the use of the electronic patient monitor to Errol Miller (centre), executive chairman of the FLOW Foundation, and Garry Sinclair, managing director of FLOW, during a recent handover.

The FLOW Foundation recently handed over four new electronic patient monitors to the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) that will assist with improving the quality of health care delivered at the institution.

The monitors will also help to address the need for additional modern equipment to serve the hospital's patients.

Valued at more than $1 million, the machines assist with continuous monitoring of the vital signs of hospitalised patients by allowing physicians to acquire critical information without the rigours of manual evaluation.

Speaking during the handover ceremony, FLOW Managing Director Garry Sinclair recommitted the company's support for the institution which is Jamaica's premier public health-care facility.

"We are happy and honoured to be able to make this contribution to the KPH, which serves the needs of many fellow Jamaicans. This is another example of us demonstrating our responsibility as a good corporate citizen and we pledge our continued support," Sinclair said.
