Premier Health and Wellness Center [PHWC], in partnership with The Little Venice Group, have committed to providing complimentary dinner to the Bermuda Hospitals Board Emergency Department for the entire time that we are Sheltering in Place.
“The shift work, the long hours, the long lines, and the fear that anyone that walks through their doors may be asymptomatic or symptomatic vectors put the ED at the greatest risk in our country. When we realized this at PHWC, we knew we had to help those whom we think would appreciate this and who deserve it,” said Dr. Stanley James.
The Little Venice Group has Committed to providing dinner every night for the ED staff as their shifts are switching. This initiative started on April 10th and will continue until the shelter in place is over.
Emilio Barbieri, on behalf of the Little Venice Group, said, “When Dr. James reached out to us and asked us to be a part of this we could not say no and Danny Lim worked with Dr. James to develop his vision and express our thanks to the Hospital and its essential workers. My co-directors, Jacky di Meglio and Teresa Chatfield join me in applauding Emergency Department’s commitment and hard work in extraordinary circumstances”.
Chief of Emergency, Dr Chikezie Dean Okereke comments: “We are very grateful for this donation of healthy food to recognise the contribution of the Emergency Department team during the shelter in place and to support their wellbeing. It is a very kind and considerate gift and on behalf of the team I would like to thank Premier Health and Little Venice.”
