St Joseph Hospital boost


Share post:

THE long abandoned St Joseph Hospital in St Peter is expected to be the new home of a world-class hospital that is expected to serve the global medical tourism market.
This new facility, according to a release by New York-based PR News Wire, is part of a long-term development programme that will also bring several specialty treatment centres, biotechnology research companies and patient accommodation facilities to the country over the next five years.
Wayne Kirton, chief executive officer of Invest Barbados, said in the statement that the initiative would bring a national asset back into productive use in a way that would generate foreign exchange, international investment and tax revenue, as well as employment and skills training and technology transfer.
The project is reportedly being undertaken by American World Clinics (AWC). (GE)
