Grand Bahama Health Services (GBHS) this past Friday, October 9, received a much-needed donation of nine oxygen concentrators, to assist in treating not only COVID-19 hospitalized patients, but all others in need of that therapy.  The donation was made by the Rotary Club of Freeport, one of the five rotary clubs here in the island of Grand Bahama.

Accepting the donation on behalf of GBHS was Sharon Williams, Administrator, GBHS, who noted that the machines will indeed go a long way in providing optimum healthcare to their patients.
