Friday 11 February 2011   The Board and Management of St. Jude Hospital in collaboration with the Israeli Agency for International Development Cooperation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Nursing Division will be staging a nine (9) day training workshop in Emergency Care and Disaster Management beginning Monday 14th,  2011.


The training exercise is the outcome of ongoing efforts by the Board and Management of St Jude Hospital in the development of strategic linkages that would bring direct benefits to the hospital and the national health sector in general.

The training provides a welcomed intervention coming just four months after the experience of Hurricane Tomas. Some thirty (30) individuals from St. Jude Hospital, Victoria Hospital, Ministry of Health District Officers, the community at large and the Fire Service will benefit from this vital training course.


The workshop will be undertaken by Dr. Josef Haik, Director, Burns ICU, Sheba Medical Center Israel, and Dvora Hertz, Head Nurse, ER Sheba Medical Centre Israel.


The training course is a result of ongoing discussions between St. Jude Hospital and His Excellency Amiram Magid, Israeli Ambassador to Saint Lucia. Ambassador Magid was apprised of the high incidence of multiple trauma cases presenting to the Emergency Departments of the Hospitals in Saint Lucia. The Ambassador not only agreed to have his government sponsor the course but has also agreed to investigate the possibility of sponsoring similar training courses in Saint Lucia which would involve other OECS states.


St. Jude Hospital, on behalf of the Government and people of Saint Lucia, wishes to express its gratitude to Ambassador Magid and the Government of Israel for this generous contribution to the health and well-being of the people of Saint Lucia.
