The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment (MOHWE) has introduced a new era of laboratory testing here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The Laboratory at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH) is now equipped to perform specialised HIV and Tuberculosis tests.
These tests were previously done overseas. The lab has also achieved Tier-1 Status in a step-wise accreditation programme.
Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment, Hon. Luke Browne recently informed that arrangements are being made for the MCMH’s Laboratory and Pharmacy to transition into operating on a 24-hour basis.
The MOHWE on Tuesday Feb. 18 announced that 24-hour X-Ray services are now available at the MCMH.
