“How do you respond to the comments that were made by another medical practitioner to another media house yesterday regarding the CT-Scan and its placement here at the KHMH?”


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

“For us, our perspective is from a public service perspective.  Access to quality healthcare is actually a part of poverty alleviation and so why not?  Why shouldn’t the regular, normal man and woman off the streets of Belize City have access to such a superior service.  And so, maybe that’s a private sector perspective.  From a public sector perspective, we are extremely happy that everybody in Belize will have access to these services at an extremely affordable price.”



“Their argument was also that while this CT-Scan here, the other public hospitals don‘t have one and that those persons from Corozal, Toledo and Dangriga, they have to travel all the way here to be able to get this service, as opposed to getting a less expensive CT Scan and placing them in all of the public hospitals.

“Well remember, Karl Heusner is the only tertiary institution in Belize and so we, our concern is the provision of care from the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.  Indeed, the ministry can explore options that were suggested but there are many things that go along with purchasing a CT.”
