Colonna Kinnisvara started a year-end campaign in December 2013 aimed at collecting money for purchasing the new incubator with the price of over 12 000 euros to the intensive care unit of Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital.Yesterday, on 10 March the new incubator was given over to Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital.

Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital is one of the three largest maternity hospitals in Estonia – every fourth child born in the country comes into the world here.

“Childbirth is a wonderful thing and while most mothers give birth without complications, in some cases the life and health of a newborn depend on prompt specialist help. To achieve that, competent and experienced medical staff often need modern equipment,” Dr Ervin Saik, paediatrician at Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital, said. “Premature babies are incapable of maintaining a normal body temperature, which is why an incubator facilitates the proper growth conditions for them,“ Dr. Saik explained.

According to Roberto de Silvestri, member of the management board of Colonna Kinnisvara, 2013 has been a very successful year for the company. In January the company completed a record transaction and acquired 16 commercial buildings from the real estate firm Ektornet. Also this year the company purchased the Press House, which it intends to transform into an office building with a pleasant atmosphere akin to that of the Creative Centre at Niine 11. “As we come to the end of this successful year, we’d like to make a socially useful contribution, so we and some of our partners are sponsoring Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital,” de Silvestri explained.

The money was collected through phone donations and charity lottery for purchasing new incubator and the remaining sum was donated to the support foundation of the maternity hospital by Colonna Kinnisvara.

The incubator was given over to the hospital by Roberto de Silvestri, member of the management board of Colonna Kinnisvara, and received by paediatrician Dr. Ervin Saik and the patron Laine Randjärv.

Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital and Colonna Kinnisvara thank everyone who contributed to the campaign.
