The JBF Paediatric Specialty Unit

JBF SUThe JBF Paediatric Specialty Unit is the Caribbean’s first multi-disciplinary, family-centered children’s ward. It is located at the Wendy Fitzwilliam Paediatric Hospital, Mount Hope. This allows for the provision of significantly higher levels of medical care to the children of T&T and the Caribbean region.

The JBF Paediatric Specialty Unit was ceremonially launched by the Honorable Minister of Health on Friday 14th November 2008. The JBF initiated and spearheaded the project in collaboration with various doctors, social workers, other NGOs, interior designers, and very generous sponsors, volunteers, and suppliers of the furniture and equipment required for the ward.

This project was given international exposure as the charity adopted by Miss T&T for the Miss WorldPageant 2008, Gabrielle Walcott who captured the “Beauty with a Purpose” title.
