GE - Olympics sponsor pledges legacy gift for Homerton hospital.
In 2009 GE, a worldwide partner of the Olympic Games, announced plans to donate £4.8 million ($8 million) worth of medical equipment, including foetal monitors, incubators and MR scanner, to the Hospital.
The pledge will enhance the Hospital’s care of premature and sick babies. It will further help reduce infant mortality rates across the Borough of Hackney in East London and make a significant contribution to the Government’s policy agenda on maternal and infant care.
The pledge is also the first UK example of GE’s healthymagination strategy launched in 2009 to make healthcare technology more accessible and more affordable for all.
