Business View Caribbean | April 2021

109 BUSINESS VIEW CARIBBEAN APRIL 2021 care for the commercial business district (New Kingston), as well as the wider community. The hospital is in near proximity to the three main universities in the city – University of the West Indies (UWI), the University of Technology (UTECH), and University College of the Caribbean (UCC). Having an address midway between uptown and downtown also makes AMH easily accessible to a wide range of residential communities. Business View Caribbean recently asked Herman Wade, AMH Marketing Manager, for some updates on the hospital’s recent achievements, innovations in technology, and the future outlook for this exceptional healthcare facility. As you’ll discover, the entire Andrews Memorial Hospital team has been working hard through the COVID-19 pandemic; committed to a strong and steady mission of healing. BVC: How does AMH fit into the big picture of Best Practices in Caribbean Healthcare? Wade: “The AMH tag line ‘Dedicated to healing the whole person’ aptly captures the essence of our approach to healthcare. We believe that healing involves treating the whole man! The physical, psychological, spiritual, and social. This approach is consistent with best practices by numerous healthcare organizations and hospitals worldwide.” BVC: How does technology help enhance the hospital’s offerings and attract new talent? Wade: “Technology drives everything in healthcare including our Hospital Management System, to sample testing in the Lab, to SCAT scans, to Telemedicine. We are also investing in developing a CAT Lab which will be completed by mid year. All these equipment are driven by cutting edge technology and forms a part of the tools we use in delivering the highest quality service to our patients. ANDREWS MEMOR I AL HOSP I TAL
