Five public health institutions are to be upgraded as part of the Ministry of Health’s North to West Trauma Plan, the centrepiece of the Government’s thrust to become the Caribbean’s leader in Health Tourism.

The earmarked institutions are: the Negril Health Centre, Westmoreland; Noel Holmes Hospital, Hanover; Cornwall Regional Hospital, St. James; Falmouth Hospital, Trelawny; and St Ann’s Bay Regional Hospital, St. Ann.

Under the Plan, the institutions’ capacity will be improved, thereby positioning them to effectively manage trauma cases and accept local and international referrals, where necessary.

This undertaking is expected to bridge major gaps in emergency healthcare delivery in that region.

Funding for the North-West Corridor Trauma Plan will be provided by the National Health Fund (NHF), Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), Culture, Health, Arts, Sports, and Education (CHASE) Fund, and private interests. (Read More)
