Billions Spent to Upgrade and Equip Health Facilities

The Government continued to invest in the development of the health sector in 2018, with billions of dollars spent to upgrade and equip hospitals and clinics islandwide.

The Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department at the Linstead Hospital in St Catherine was reopened following extensive renovation at a cost of $144.98 million.

A New Drug Serv Pharmacy was opened at the hospital through $31 million in funding from the National Health Fund (NHF).
