NEIL McDonald, Khanya Hospice CEO, thanked Shannon Kain, manager operations of SA Paramedic Services in Park Rynie recently.

“The company opened a new office at the Scottburgh Mall this week and on behalf of Khanya Hospic, thanks go to Shannon Kain and his ambulance crew who responded very quickly to a distress call from me,” McDonald said. He said a customer, who was shopping at the Hospice charity shop in Scottburgh, collapsed and fell in the shop. Shop staff did not know the seriousness or what happened to the patient, but when the call was made, paramedics Dwane Jutronich and Brenda Grobbelaar responded quickly.

“They were on the scene in no time, stabilised the patient and took her to hospital where she recovered. A story with a happy ending, the patient fully recovered and is ready for more shopping,” said McDonald.

Hospice can be contacted on 039 976 0938 or hospice@scott net.co.za
