Official Renaming of Sandiland's Circle
Public Hospitals Authority and Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre will host an official ceremony for the renaming of the “Sandilands Circle” on Sunday 22nd February, 2015 at 3pm.
The “Circle” will be christened “Drella’s Dream” in honour of the late Adrella Gibson, Senior Nursing Officer. Nursing Officer Gibson was adamant that the clients’ clinical experience should complement the outdoors. Ms. Gibson was one of the Bahamas’ most decorated and qualified Psychiatric Nurses. She provided a blue print that guided the process for developing the areas even after her death on August 12th 2012.
Nurse Gibson was a bright light at the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre enjoying a successful career as a psychiatric nurse and nurse manager, and in 2012 she received the PHA’s Manger of Year Award, the Authority’s highest recognition for a staff member in a leadership position.
