3rd November 2016 – Bridgetown, Barbados: Nurses at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital were rewarded for their tireless service today by telecommunications giant Digicel. The Digicel team descended on the hospital today, with vouchers for free credit for the nurses of the institution.
Speaking on the decision to recognise the contribution of the nurses, Digicel CEO Conor Looney explained, “Nurses are among the unsung heroes in Barbados, who provide care and comfort to our communities at some of the most difficult periods of their lives. As part of our independence celebrations, we have been looking for new ways to give back to the community and we chose nurses on this occasion, as they truly deserve our appreciation for their selfless service.”
Digicel announced on October 12th, that they would give Barbadians fifty days of surprises in celebration of the Golden Jubilee. Since then, the company has been supporting various initiatives all across the island, rewarding their loyal customers and preparing as title sponsor for the highly anticipated Barbados Is Music (B.I.M.) concert slated for November 29th which will see patrons receiving the biggest surprise of them all.
Describing the whole experience as wonderful and exciting, Assistant Director of Nursing Henderson Pinder stated, “To honour and recognise our nurses in such a way is indeed truly credible and it is a testament to Digicel being a company that cares about the island’s nursing population.”
Adding that that there was much more in store, Looney concluded, “Our customers can look forward to Digicel continuing to be first, the first 4G LTE network on the island and also being first for the community.”
