The Rand Memorial Hospital was among the many essential services which were severely impacted by Hurricane Dorian’s passing. To date, challenges persist as hardworking healthcare professionals work tirelessly to mitigate the fallout from COVID-19 in addition to Dorian related issues as well.

Grand Bahama’s Happiest Hotel, Pelican Bay, delivered to the hospital last week, boxes of fresh linens including sheets, blankets, and pillows which are always in high demand.

“With very low occupancy at Pelican Bay, we’ve been using this time to obviously make the necessary repairs and also to go through our inventory and take stock of what we have,” explained Pelican Bay’s General Manager, Magnus Alnebeck.

“In doing so, we found that we had an overstock of some items which we thought could be put to better use in our health care system, especially with the impact of their facilities.”

35 boxes of linens, pillows, blankets, and other items were hand-delivered to staff at the Rand hospital by Darion Martin, Pelican Bay’s Operations assistant, and Elvis Sanon who is part of the property’s maintenance team.

“On behalf of the staff and patients of the Rand Memorial Hospital I want to send a special thank you to Pelican Bay for this generous donation,” said Deputy Hospital Administrator, Sandra Mortimer-Russell.

“Comfort is critical to the healing process and so being able to provide that comfort to our patients. This donation is extremely important for us, and couldn’t come at a better time.”

While the hotel awaits for the island to reopen fully and for tourism to restart, management and staff were pleased to be able to help.

“As Grand Bahama’s happiest hotel, we understand that its part of our responsibility to share that happiness with the wider community in whatever ways we can,” said PB’s Operations Manager, Della Bridgewater.

“Helping is part of our DNA and so we’re happy to be of assistance to the GB community wherever we can.”
