KHMH equipmentKarl Heusner Memorial Hospital added some equipment to their new Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit this morning. A donation of one hundred and twenty thousand US dollars was donated to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital through the Special Envoy for Women and Children, Kim Simplis Barrow by the Government of Japan, through its Grassroots Human Security Project in 2014. Since then KHMH has used the funds to acquire the necessary equipment. Chief Executive Officer of KHMH, Dr. Adrian Coye told us about their new purchases.

Belize’s first dedicated Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will give newborns and critically ill children access to quality healthcare. To operate the new equipment, Dr. Coye says that the appropriate training will be given.

Ambassador of Japan to Belize, His Excellency Masanori Nakano attended the official handing over.
