CHASE Hands Over Laparoscopic Machines for May Pen and Mandeville Regional Hospitals

05 Jul, 2018

The CHASE Fund handed over Laparoscopic Towers to both the Mandeville Regional and May Pen Hospitals on June 19, 2018.  The handover took place at the May Pen Hospital.  CHASE provided funding in the amount of $25.3M for the procurement of the laparoscopic towers and instruments.  Laparoscopy is often used to identify and diagnose the source of pelvic or abdominal pain. It’s usually performed when noninvasive methods are unable to help with diagnosis.  Dr. Ashok Kotagiri Kumar, Medical Officer, Mandeville Regional Hospital (left), demonstrates the laparoscopy machine to St. Andrade Sinclair, CEO, May Pen Hospital (centre), and W.
