“A major breakthrough for the provision of health care here in St. Vincent”. That is how Minister of Health Luke Browne describes the soon to be opened Diagnostic, Treatment and Medical Complex located in Georgetown.
Browne speaking in Parliament on Thursday 28th June said the complex was built at a cost of over 22 million dollars and will provide a wide range of medical services, including accident and emergency service to some 40, 000 people stretching from Biabou to Fancy.
He stated that one of the major services would be that of Hemodialysis, which will be available to kidney patients across the country.
“This is hope for all kidney patients”, Browne told parliament, while noting that during the period 2015-2016, a total of 53 persons died as a result of kidney disease in St Vincent.
The new Medical Complex at Georgetown will be open from July 2nd, 2018 at 2 pm.
