Carnival Cruise Line’s guests have taken to the cruise line’s new charity partnership with The Children’s Hospital at Westmead with gusto – wiggling, wobbling and nutbushing their way through its inaugural Wiggle for Westmead dance parties.

People who are accustomed to recycling at home often find it frustrating to throw away recyclables at work. And hospitals generate a lot of recyclables. Most hospitals recycle plastics and other materials from the cafeteria and office areas. However, as hospital staff know, a lot of recyclable plastic is used in the patient care areas, as well. Trays, pitchers, basins, and blue wrap are just a few of the items that could be recycled.

More than 30 Action Team Captains from Cypress Bay High School joined Swarzak in making some extra special deliveries at Chris Evert Children’s Hospital in Ft. Lauderdale.

In December 2010, the GE Foundation made a $2 million commitment to help build a new public hospital that would be Haiti’s largest post-earthquake public health facility. Hector E. Aguilar, CEO of GE Central America & The Caribbean, discusses the GE Foundation’s role and the opening of the hospital.
