Barbados?has lost its top spot with the American World Clinics (AWC).
Four years after AWC approached Government about opening a medical tourism hospital here, its directors are now looking at alternative start-up locations because of the time it has taken to get the US$200 million project off the ground.
AWC?president Robert Priddy told the SUNDAY?SUN that because of the lengthy delay Barbados might no longer be the location for the flagship mega facility.
“We are in the process of evaluating opportunities including The Bahamas, the Canary Islands, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos, Tobago and Nicaragua,”?he said.
“At this time we are in various stages of active negotiations at four of these sites. Operationally, we will have dedicated professional leadership for each site and are confident based on existing physician and nursing interest that we will have no problem staffing facilities in all of those locations.”
