On Monday, April 8th, 2019, the Modern Medical & Diagnostic Centre received a water cooler and flat screen TV with wall mount as a donation from the Standard Caribbean Shippers (SCS) Ltd. (a New York-based Vincentian-owned shipping company founded in 1999 which has an office in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines located on Upper Middle Street).
The donation materialized as a result of a conversation between Deputy Hospital Administrator, Ms. Idinger Miller, and SCS’s owner, Mr. Carl Munroe. Mr. Munroe wanted to find out how his enterprise can better assist and serve patients.
Deputy Hospital Administrator Miller said that the donated items will help improve the patient experience at the facility. According to Ms. Miller, the television will help with interactive education and engagement as well as diversional therapy for the patients while they await services. As for the water cooler, ultrasound patients often need to take in water before the procedure is performed. This means that they either have to bring water with them or source it somewhere outside of the Complex. The water cooler will make life easier for them. Additionally, water will also be available for patients who are thirsty and need refreshment. Ms. Miller thanked the management and staff of SCS Ltd. for the donation and said she sees it as the beginning of a long term partnership.
