Thursday, March 12th – Yesterday the British Virgin Islands Health Services Authority received a donation of $25,000 for Peebles Hospital.
Hon. Archibald Christian presented the donation on behalf of John and Jill Maynard, former owners of Thatch Island. The couple who currently resides on the island of Tortola has been living in the Virgin Islands for over ten years.
Hon. Christian stated that Mr. & Mrs. Maynard have always considered the BVI as their second home and wanted to give back to the community, thus their generous donation to the hospital.
The donation was presented to the Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Darlene Carty – Baptiste, Director of Hospital Services, Mrs. Cedorene Malone-Smith and the Chief of Medical Staff, Dr. June Samuel.
When receiving the donation Mrs. Darlene Carty-Baptiste said “As persons continue to think of ways to give back to the community, we at the British Virgin Islands Health Services Authority is very grateful for every donation as this allows for continued work towards building a better and stronger health system for all.”
Dr. June Samuel added, “Our top priority is the development and delivery of comprehensive medical services at the BVIHSA and every donation provides us with the financial support to improve all services.”
The British Virgin Islands Health Services Authority says thank you to Mr. and Mrs. John Maynard for your generous contribution towards supporting the medical needs of the community.
