STAFF of Bank South Pacific recently undertook some renovation work at the St John Hospital in Gerehu and at a church-run clinic in Tokarara.
It was part of the bank’s community project initiative.
The Gerehu project was undertaken by the bank’s group risk management and human resources strategic business units.
They put up a new air-condition unit, new walls with a fresh coat of paint for the mini operating theatre.
Repairs and painting were done to seats in the outpatient area.
The hospital serves the densely populated suburb and provides health care to residents who do not have to travel to Port Moresby General Hospital.
At Tokarara, renovations involved the extension of the roof and new benches in the waiting area.
St John Gerehu Hospital chief executive officer Dr George Gende and facilities manager Kenneth Rorah thanked the bank staff for their help to ensure that health services are provided to city residents.
“The personnel are in high spirits as they now have a conducive working environment. It’s a win-win for all,” Gende said.
Tokarara Clinic manager Olive Ume said the patients “will now be happy and comfortable”
