KPH Receives Equipment from Rejuvenate Jamaica Hospitals

Jan 30, 2018  |  Kingston

Health care services at the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) received a boost yesterday (January 29, 2017) with the donation of an Ultrasound Machine, Anaesthetic Patient Monitor and a Patient Monitor courtesy of the UK-based Rejuvenate Jamaica Hospitals charity organisation. The Ultrasound Machine is valued at US$15,000 while the other two equipment are valued at £3,057. The Kingston Public Hospital performed over 7,000 ultrasounds in 2017, therefore an additional machine will improve the hospital's ability to screen more patients thereby reducing the waiting for this service. Dr. Elvis Brown (right), Head of the Radiology Department, KPH demonstrates how the attachments on the Ultrasound Machine works. Looking on are (L-R) Ms. Cecile Jenkins, Founder, Rejuvenate Jamaica Hospitals, Ms.Velma McKenzie, Chairperson,  Rejuvenate Jamaica Hospitals, Mr. Cloyd Clarke, Radiographer, KPH and Dr. Natalie Whylie, Senior Medical Officer, KPH.
