Minister of Health Donville Inniss said construction of the facility which will provide a wide range of health care services at the primary level, will be completed by year end and should be in full operation before the end of March.
Inniss was speaking to the media today during a tour of the facility along with the Minister of Family, Culture, Sports and Youth Stephen Lashley, representatives from the Ministry of Social Care and Parliamentary representative for St John Mara Thompson.
