Kingston Public Hospital
To our ‘partners‘ who have stood up and helped the Gore Famly Foundation and KPH with their ongoing sheet drive for the 500 beds at the Caribbean’s oldest public hospital … (yes! 500 beds, changed 3 times a day – we need 36,000 sheets annually for KPH!) … we say a most sincere and heartfelt ‘thank you‘ to:
- The Courtleigh Hotel & Suites (The Hendrickson Family Group)
- The Liguanea Club
- The Spanish Court Hotel
- The Terra Nova Hotel
- Strawberry Hill Hotel
- Sandals Foundation
- Food for the Poor
And, may we just add, the Gore Family Foundation is always standing by to collect more sheets, whenever any of our hotels are ready!
Once more, thanks to all from the Gore Family Foundation and KPH!
Help Us To Help KPH – It’s Everybody’s Hospital
The Gore Family Foundation is on a mission to help the Kingston Public Hospital, KPH, the oldest public hospital in Jamaica and the English-speaking Caribbean, since 1776.
KPH is the largest multidisciplinary facility in Jamaica’s Public Health Service and the largest Trauma Centre in the English-speaking Caribbean. With a capacity of 500 beds, approximately 90,000 patients are now seen in the Accident and Emergency Unit annually, and over 27, 000 patients are admitted; in excess of 120,000 patients visit the multidisciplinary Out-Patient Department. In 2015, 660,000 emergency and close to 600,000 elective surgical procedures were undertaken.
Our KPH, which is for all Jamaicans, is faced with numerous infrastructural challenges and shortages of vital equipment and supplies as the institution tries to provide the highest standard of health care to all, hence our urgent appeal.
Join Kingston’s leading and caring hotels as we go all out to provide sheets for the 500 beds at KPH, as the hospital needs 36,000 annually! We source the most cost-effective sheets and deliver them to KPH where they are enthusiastically received.
We are “gearing up” to assist with much-needed equipment too, so watch this space.
