The Friends of St. Albert’s want to thank Global Links Suture Donation Program for sending 800 sutures for St. Albert’s Mission Hospital. Those sutures, along with rolls of sterile gauze and race-appropriate books for hospitalized children, were delivered Monday, Sept. 7. The box was taken to Rome by a physician traveling from Columbus, Ohio, to Rome. Two representatives from the Associazione Sanitaria Internazionale (International Medical Association) office in Rome were at the airport to receive the package. The package will be carried to St. Albert’s by hospital director Dr. Elizabeth Tarira, who will be in Rome for several weeks starting next week.
