Kiwanis Club of Hamilton Donate Baby Stroller to Gosling Ward

Funds raised by the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton’s Night of Poetry and Song have been used to donate a baby stroller to Gosling Ward at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH). The new equipment was needed to replace an old stroller to safely transport babies throughout the hospital, for example, if they need to visit KEMH’s MRI or Radiology department.

Manager of Gosling Ward, Michelle Thomas, comments: “We are very grateful for this generous donation. Moving babies in a stroller is safer than carrying them in the arms. Sometimes babies are sedated or asleep so the stroller will help mitigate the risks when we need to transport them through the hospital. It can also be used to help safely soothe babies by taking them around the department when they are restless.”

Carol Clarke, Secretary of the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton and chairperson of the Night of Poetry and Song event, comments: “We were very pleased to make this donation and the support the care provided by the staff in Gosling Ward. We are passionate about supporting this ward and previously have donated items such as toys. We look forward to staying in touch to see where we can assist in the future.”
