Thursday, March 2, 2006 - The Ministry of Health has allocated some $2.5 million towards the rehabilitation of 15 health centres around the island. This has been disclosed by Health Minister Damian Greaves.

According to the Minister, the money was allocated “to improve the quality of health care services delivered at health centres.”

He said the rehabilitation works were also being undertaken “to improve the conditions of work for health care employees.”

The Minister says the health centres will be rehabilitated at Grande Riviere, La Ressource and Richefond in the Dennery area and at Belle Vue in Vieux Fort North.

Health centres will also be rehabilitated at Babonneau and Fond Assau, as well as at the La Guerre Health Outpost in the north, as well as at Fond St. Jacques and Mongouge in Choiseul.

There will also be rehabilitation to health centres at Grace in Laborie, Desruisseaux in Micoud, as well as at La Croix Maingot and Bexon in Castries South and South East, respectively.

Meanwhile, the minister says his ministry is currently awaiting the award of contracts “by next month” for the health centres in the village of Micoud and in the community of Mon Repos, which will together cost almost $478,000.

He said the ministry also hoped to award by April this year a contract for renovation works at the La Clery and Canaries Health Centres, at an approximate cost of $483,000.

Mr. Greaves also indicated that some work was done at the Soufriere polyclinic, where a maternity wing has been completed and a counselling room has also been constructed for attending to patients with mental health problems.
