As a part of its commitment to contribute to the social well-being of the communities where it operates, Seaboard Marine recently transported a series of beds for patient care in the Caribbean.
In the Dominican Republic, Seaboard Marine partnered with Associated Global Systems (AGS), Miami’s Jackson Memorial, and the Center for Global Health and International Medicine to donate 60 position beds to a nursing facility in Santo Domingo.
In Jamaica, Seaboard Marine recently partnered with Jamaica Producers Group, a food and logistics conglomerate, to provide intensive care unit (ICU) beds to University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) in Kingston. The state-of-the-art hospital beds improve inpatient care and ease of use for hospital staff. A total of 12 beds were shipped last week to Kingston, Jamaica and are in the process of being retrofitted for immediate use.
“As part of our continued efforts to give back and make a difference in the communities we serve, we always desire to get closely involved with these types of impactful donations,” said Stephen Bell, Vice President of the Caribbean Division. “Simply writing a check isn’t what we’re about at Seaboard Marine. We want to be at the ground level as we are appreciative for the opportunity to help those in need in these communities”
