The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment (MOHWE) on Friday (May 15) announced three developments with regard to the provision of health services in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).
The MOHWE informed that the Evesham Health Clinic has been re-opened for approximately one month, after a period of closure during which repairs were carried out.
A staff nurse would move into the Layou Nurse Quarters over the weekend. According to the MOHWE, this would go a long way towards ensuring that a nurse is always on hand at that facility to respond to emergencies.
Further, the Kingstown District Clinic, located at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital will be re-opened on Monday May 18, 2020 with all services restored. The clinic was closed temporarily as part of the national COVID-19 Response Plan.
Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment, Hon. Luke Browne also announced on Friday that six portable ventilators were donated and delivered to the Isolation Centre in Argyle on Thursday (May 14).
“The Ministry is working on a project for the repair and rehabilitation of health facilities throughout the country,” Browne added.
“These favourable developments would have an impact on the provision of healthcare to thousands of Vincentians,” MOHWE
