Earlier this month, SCH had the pleasure of visiting one of its major partners, IMEC America, at their headquarters in North Andover, MA, USA.
IMEC is an important partner for SCH through its provision of our teaching container, equipment for our new emergency room, nursery, theatre and wards.
SCH General Manager, Ms. Debora Rogo, met with the IMEC team, including its founder, Mr. Tom Keefe and lead coordinator, Ms. Sue Crawford. In addition, she had an opportunity to meet the IMEC staff and volunteers that assist in the great work that IMEC does and also toured their impressive warehouse where it organizes and packs various suites to communities across the globe to support hospitals, schools and farmers.
As part of the activities, Ms. Rogo did a small presentation for the IMEC team showcasing the work done at SCH and also how the equipment that they have sent has assisted in our clinical, educational and research endeavors.
In addition, IMEC provided SCH with a vital signs monitor and other maternal health equipment that has already been installed at the hospital.
Lastly, SCH learned more about IMEC’s new project, the Transforming Communities Initiative (TCI), and looks forward to exploring avenues towards implementing it in Sagam towards strengthened capabilities in health, education and agriculture.
