Perimeter Fencing To Improve Security At Princess Margaret Hospital – NHF Grants $38.6 Million For Project

The National Health Fund, NHF has approved a grant of $38.6 million to erect a perimeter fence to enclose the Princess Margaret Hospital compound in Morant Bay, St. Thomas.

Security at the property, which includes the hospital, the St. Thomas Health Department and Morant Bay Health Centre, has been a major concern over many years. Stray animals roaming the compound also pose a health threat at the institution.

Mrs. Coleen Wright, Acting Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital says, “The staff is very happy with the news that NHF has granted funds to the South East Regional Health Authority to erect the perimeter fence for the compound. The lack of this fence has been one of the biggest concerns for the staff here because there is access from all points of the compound. Staff and patients will feel more protected when the fence is completed and so now we look forward to the start of construction.”

Both reinforced block walls and PVC coated chain link fence construction will be used for the nearly 1300 metres of fencing which will enclose the compound.
