ANGUILLA–Anguillians will soon have much improved hospital service at the Princess Alexandra Hospital. According to a release from Governor Tim Foy, the renovations to the hospital are well on the way to completion with an official opening of the wards scheduled for mid-November. The work is being funded from the UK 60 million pound sterling grant.
The release notes that the flooring, electrical work, air conditioners as well as patient bed-side call buttons have all been installed now with other equipment, beds and more furnishings on the way. The wards will include ante- and post-natal rooms, new bathrooms and an obstetrical operating theatre.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Health Authority, Maeza Demis-Adams said, “The collaborative team of the Health Authority and the Ministry of Health is very proud of the upgrades to the wards and are working tirelessly to complete the work by November so that we can best serve the people of Anguilla.”
Progress is also being made on the proposed Valley Health Clinic and the call for tenders for the design of the clinic will be requested within the next two weeks. Once complete the Valley Health Clinic will offer an integrated approach to primary health care which includes dentistry, child health clinics and a pharmacy. This is also part of the UK grant funding.
