The first phase of new Dominica-China friendship hospital will open it’s doors for the people on September 6 next month, said Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit during Town Hall meeting at Mahaut constituency.
“We are grateful and happy to announce that on 6th of September, you the people of Dominica will start benefiting from its new Dominica-China friendship hospital and that hospital will have all the amenities and the top-notch equipment that you will need here in Dominica to provide better medical facilities to us.”
The Prime Minister asserted that some people pointed fingers on them asking to publicize the MoU signed between the governments of Dominica and China, even they criticized the Chinese government but on September 6, anyone of us who fall sick in Dominica requires MRI, but no one will have to go anywhere else but the Dominica-China friendship hospital.
Not only this, but the government also promises that senior above the age of 60 years and children below 18 years will get free medical care at the hospital.
“To my seniors, 60 and older and children 18 and under will continue to enjoy the free aid at the hospital. If granny who is 75 years old fall sick and to find out what happened to her, she will put on the MRI machine, all she has to say is thank you very much, that’s it, no bills to you, the government of Dominica and Dominica Labour Party is taking care of the people of Dominica,” said Prime Minister.
