Corporate Hands: Hospitals Get Beds from J Wray and Nephew
On January 26, J. Wray and Nephew Limited, donated 76 hospital beds and mattresses valued at approximately US$57,000 (J$6.8 Million) to six major hospitals across the island as part of the company's 190th anniversary celebrations.
The presentation of the beds was made during a ceremony at Food For The Poor Jamaica's headquarters at Ellerslie Pen, St Catherine. The health institutions benefitting from this donation are Kingston Public, Spanish Town, Cornwall Regional, May Pen, St Ann's Bay and Mandeville hospitals.
All 76 beds are semi-electric, which means they are able to be adjusted with and without an electrical source.
The initiative was carried out in partnership with Food for The Poor Jamaica which sourced the beds ensuring that they met international specifications.
