In a genuine private-public partnership, the only community bank in Cayman Brac reached out to the only community hospital to help repair some hurricane damage from Paloma.

In early December 2009, a donation from Cayman National Bank to the Faith Hospital in Cayman Brac will repair some exterior damages that were the result of the storm, as well as to make some new improvements to the only hospital that serves the Sister Islands.

“The donation by the Cayman National Bank is indeed very timely,” said Dr Velusamy, Consultant Surgeon and Medical Officer in charge of Faith Hospital.

“The renovation project is almost finished and with this donation the external painting for the entire building will complete the project.”

Faith Hospital, a community hospital that serves the residents of both Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, is an 18-bed facility with a professional staff of physicians, nurses, and support staff.

The initial repairs and renovation of the building following the hurricane came from the Cayman Islands Health Services Authority.

Bank officials received a tour of the hospital recently to see firsthand the result of its donation. “I am extremely pleased that Cayman National is sponsoring the repainting of Faith Hospital,” said Zanda Scott, Branch Manager of Cayman National Bank’s Cayman Brac and Little Cayman offices, “and as a Cayman Bracker, I am proud that our organization is able to assist the people of the Sister Islands.”
