Health Care is expected to receive a major boost in the Portsmouth constituency with the construction of a new wing on the Reginald Armour Hospital as well as a new health center.
These new projects are funded under Dominica’s Citizenship By Investment (CBI) programme and will be developed by Montreal Management Consultants EST (MMCE).
According to Prime Minister Honorable Roosevelt Skerrit, contracts have already been signed for the construction of the new health center.
“We will be creating more space and additional services at that hospital to cater to the town of Portsmouth. We also have already signed an agreement for a new health center. The health center will now be separated from the hospital so that we separate primary health care from secondary health care services. We have been advised that this allows for a more organized service because sometimes people go to the hospital for things they should go to the health center for,” Hon Skerrit said.
The Dominica leader went on to express appreciation to the MMCE and made clear it’s exclusive sponsorship through the CBI programme.
