PR – The Ministry of Health, Wellness, and Religious Affairs welcomes its most recent collaboration with Grenada Electricity Services Ltd. (Grenlec), which has provided a grant for the purchase of furniture and appliance to improve the quality of life of residents, and the level of care delivered by the staff at the Mt. Gay Psychiatric Hospital.
Having declared 2023 the year of “Mental Health and Wellness”, the Ministry continues to increase its focus on improving the delivery of holistic health services to all citizens.
Permanent Secretary with Responsibility for the Strategic and Operational Management of the General and Subsidiary Hospitals, Mt. Gay Psychiatric Hospital, Richmond Home, and the Community Health Services, Mrs. Naomi Jeremiah, recognised the importance of the Ministry’s partnership with Grenlec and thanked them for their continued support.
Mrs. Jeremiah also confirmed that the recent grant facilitated the purchase of over $35,000 dollars’ worth of furniture and equipment through the Company’s Community Partnership Initiative (GCPI).
Mrs. Annmarie Duncan-Mason, acting Hospital Services Administrator at the Mt. Gay Hospital, confirmed that the items are already in use and have enhanced the level of comfort and care of its clients.
Reiterating Grenlec’s ethos of service to community, Prudence Greenidge, Corporate Communications Manager, praised the Ministry’s current focus on mental health and wellness, and extended special thanks to healthcare workers for their service and sacrifice.
The Mt. Gay facility currently houses 129 clients: 88 men and 31 women between the ages 19-70. The Princess Alice Hospital, Richmond Home and the General Hospital, and other Ministry of Health institutions, have also benefited significantly from the GPCI.
The Ministry of Health, Wellness, and Religious Affairs remains committed to improving the delivery of care to all citizens and continues to recognise corporate citizens like Grenlec, and others whose partnership furthers its mandate.
