Editorial Staff


Friends of Mount St Johns Medical Center has donated an electrocardiograph machine to Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre.

An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in the heart. It is one of the simplest and fastest tests used to evaluate the heart.  

The equipment, valued at over $15, 000.00 is earmarked for the hospital’s outpatient clinic. 

Head of Marketing & Communications at SLBMC says the generosity of FoMSJMC has been a pillar of SLBMC’s growth-story over the years.

 “This dedicated charitable organization has donated funding for just about every area of our hospital—equipment, facilities, training. All of us at SLBMC are so grateful for the continuous support from the Friends of MSJMC—Happy to announce, soon to be Friends of SLBMC. This donation increases the number of ECG machines at our hospital which will help improve the expert care delivered by our team. They are a true friend; the positive impact of this donation will be felt by many in our communities,” she said.

President of association Dwayna Derrick said “We support the people of Antigua & Barbuda through the work that we do raising funds to help advance the mission of the hospital. Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre is the nation’s hospital—We’ve been supporting them for decades and will continue to do so for many more to come.
