Clinic wait


Share post:

AT LEAST 800 JOBS can be generated within 12 months of Government giving the nod to start a BDS$400 million project that has been delayed for two years.
That was the word from Robert Priddy, president of the American World Clinics (AWC) who, along with partner and chief executive officer Dr Paul Angelchik, has been actively seeking to establish a specialist hospital on the site of the abandoned St Joseph Hospital in St Peter since 2010.
“We are ready to step forward. We have the funding in place,” said Priddy from his Denver, Colorado home yesterday.
Priddy said the delay was due largely to Government wanting a more thorough analysis of the medical tourism project which envisions the establishment of a 120 000 square foot surgical hospital and 40 000 square foot accompanying clinic that includes an acute medical and surgical emergency care centre with aeromedical evacuation, and a concierge primary care practice.
