Guardian Group Foundation donates equipment valued over $4m to Mandeville Regional Hospital

More than 600,000 residents in the parishes of Manchester, Clarendon, and St Elizabeth are set to benefit from new equipment now retrofitted at the Mandeville Regional Hospital from proceeds of the Guardian Group Foundation's 2018 “Keep it Alive” 5K Night Runs.


The equipment, which includes two operating theatre stretchers, one desktop autoclave, six infusion pumps, one cardiac monitor and two vital signs monitors, were valued at $4,052,000.
Marcia Francis, acting chief executive officer at the hospital, noted that the donation of the equipment was well appreciated and would go a far way in facilitating access to health care for residents of Manchester, Clarendon and St Elizabeth.


Since the partnership with the Guardian Group Foundation began in 2016, the hospital has received an estimated total of $10 million in equipment from funds raised from the 'Keep It Alive' 5K Night Runs.


Speaking at the handing over ceremony, Eric Hosin, president of Guardian Life Limited, reaffirmed the organization's commitment to its partnering hospitals and explained that the donated equipment will play a vital role in fostering a healthier Jamaica.
