New hospital coming for Negril

Posted: April 23, 2012

 

 

Government has given its approval for the construction of a hospital in Negril, Westmoreland.

 

Construction of the Negril International Hospital and Wellness Centre is expected to begin later this year, at an estimated cost of US $200 m.

 

Chairman of the Board of Directors Winston Wellington says the facility is to be built in Orange Bay, Negril on lands for which they are negotiating with the Urban Development Corporation (UDC).

 

It will feature, among other things, a full scale emergency room, a radiology department, a cardiology laboratory and dialysis centre.

 

Mr. Wellington says there are also plans for the hospital to have attached  university type pre-training sections.

 

He adds that arrangements are in place for the facility to be operated for the first 10 years by the American Management Group out of Harvard University.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
