P.M. Briceño on Medical Facilities

Prime Minister John Briceño

During to his speech today, Prime Minister John Briceño said that the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital is in need of infrastructural improvements. In an interview with the media, the PM went further to say that they are looking at the possibility of constructing a tertiary care institution in Belmopan and possibly a new facility in Belize City to ease the burden on the K.H.M.H.

“We know that the building itself we have problems with it. The last time it was cracking and they tried to fix it so we have to see how we can fix that. We are looking at what are the long plans for Karl Heusner. Do we need to build another hospital in another part of the city? As it is we are looking at how we can build another tertiary institution in Belmopan. What is happening is that Karl Heusner is bursting at its seams because everybody comes here. So we have to share the work and not depend solely on only one institution. God forbid a hurricane hits Belize City and this is the only real tertiary institution that we have, as a country, then we are going to be in trouble. So we have to think long term and we have to see how we can continue to build on what we have to serve our people best.”
