Tuesday, November 24, 2009 – The Ministry of Health and Wellness have officially handed over a fully refurbished health facility to the community of Ti-Rocher. The facility will also serve communities in close proximity.

Minister for Health and Wellness Dr. Keith Mondesir, says the re-establishment of the Ti- Rocher Wellness Centre, ties in with government's health projection for primary health care on the island.

Minister Mondesir says services offered at national wellness centres islandwide will provide citizens with modern health maintenance and rehabilitation benefits. “Preventing the onslaught of disease is much cheaper because it is more costly to deal with at the tertiary level. So, we must improve our health centres not only with modern machinery, but also with the environment in which the people are going to be served. Hence the improvement in the physical structure and the machines which are important in carrying out primary health care,” the health minister said.

Parliamentary representative for Castries South East, Honourable Guy Joseph, says although the completion of the Ti-Rocher Wellness Centre was delayed, officials at the Ministry of Health spared no effort in ensuring that the facility was finished to meet international standards. “Even the residents of the community who came in here today have said that it was worth the wait, to see the high level of the facility. There are still a few bits and pieces to be taken care of, but as we move along, I am quite satisfied that the Ti-Rocher Health Centre is well established for another decade before we need to do any major works to it,” Mr. Joseph said.

The Ti-Rocher Wellness Centre was formally handed over to the community, last Friday.
