Cable Bahamas/Aliv Partners with PMH to Connect Patients with Relatives

The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) is pleased to announce a partnership between Cable Bahamas/Aliv and the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) to connect patients with relatives via phone calls and video conferencing. The telecommunications company has provided fifteen (15) devices to the hospital on a three-month unlimited plan. The phones will be dedicated to our patients on our Children’s Ward, those in the Emergency Department and for updates regarding our little clients from our Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit.

The donation comes after visiting hours at the hospital were suspended last week to minimize the possible exposure of COVID-19 in our hospital. The devices provided by ALIV will be used to provide patients with a connection to relatives and guardians who are not permitted to visit at this time.

The PHA extends heartfelt thanks to Cable Bahamas/Aliv for its efforts to help meet the needs of our patients during the fight against COVID-19, and thanks the public for its understanding regarding the temporary visitation policy

The public is urged to pay attention to all public health announcements, public service announcements and updates regarding health and hospital services during this time.
