KHMH Seeing Better Days but Still Enforcing COVID Protocols

Chandra Nisbet-Cansino

With the number of new COVID-19 infections and deaths on the decrease, many people believe that the virus that only months ago was still wreaking havoc in Belize is now behind us. And while the beds at the K.H.M.H. have not been filled to capacity with COVID patients for many weeks, the hospital’s C.E.O. is of the view that we are not yet living in a post-COVID era. But now that the hospital is not overwhelmed with COVID patients, it has reopened it clinics and is seeing better revenue streams.


Chandra Nisbet-Cansino, C.E.O., K.H.M.H.

“The hospital has opened, for the most part, for the clinics and the elective surgeries and so our financials are looking a little bit better but it will certainly take us a while, with a lot of innovation and a lot of support from the general public, for us to get back to where we want to be. For the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, the pandemic is still very real. Remember anybody that needs hospitalization for the most part that ends up here at the hospital, we currently have four persons hospitalized, for mild symptoms I might add. At this time we have nobody critically ill and it has been that way for quite a while. We haven’t had a death for quite a few weeks as well. So while we are looking at it positively, we care cautiously optimistic and we remain with all the COVID-19 protocols within the hospital setting.”
