The Gillespie Foundation recently made a financial donation to the Mount St. John’s
Medical Centre which was used to assist in the purchase of additional equipment to support the hospital’s renal services. A MSJMC statement said the donation of more than EC$32,000 was used to purchase two cardiac monitors and three computers for the dialysis unit. “It has been known that patients with end stage renal disease are at significant risk for cardiac arrhythmias and sudden death. Having these cardiac Monitors gives us the ability to better monitor our patients,” Nephrologist, Dr. Ian Thomas, as he expressed thanks to the Gillespie Foundation. “The Gillespie Foundation is thrilled to make its first official donation to the Renal Ward at Mount St. John’s Medical Centre,” said the Gillespie Foundation’s Co-Director, Robert Gillespie. More than any other year in living memory, all around the world we have seen the importance of hospitals and the wonderful teams that make them run. So there can be no worthier cause in the midst of a pandemic than doing our small bit to support Antigua’s top medical facility.”
