Cabinet Agreed to $1.5 Million Injection Towards KHMH Expenses

In expanding on the allocation, Minister Chebat says that the proposal was taken to Cabinet on Tuesday and a decision was made for the monies to be set aside for the hospital, aside from what has already been given to K.H.M.H. since the beginning of the year.  Minister Chebat also congratulated Andrew Baird as the incoming president of the K.H.M.H. Workers Union.

“Today we’re also handing over a check in the sum of one point five million dollars to the KHMH.  On Friday, November twelfth, I met with the chairman and deputy chairman of the board where I was presented with the expenses the hospital has been incurring since the start of this pandemic.  I took this to cabinet on Tuesday, and the prime minister and cabinet immediately agreed to this additional subsidy to be handed over to the KHMH.  Ladies and gentlemen, this one point five million is in addition to the twenty-six point nine million we have given to the KHMH since January twenty-first of this year and the more than three million dollars in pharmaceuticals given to them by the Ministry of Health and Wellness.  Let me reiterate that the Ministry of Health and Wellness is determined to transform the healthcare system of this country and the KHMH plays an important role in the delivery of quality and affordable healthcare to all Belizeans.  Lastly, ladies and gentlemen, let me take this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Andrew Baird and his executive for being newly elected to the union of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital and let me thank Nurse Blake for her years of dedicated service.”
