Clinic ‘model for future’
The St John Polyclinic will serve as a prototyope for polyclinics of the future and would be a significant milestone for the people of St John and the surrounding parishes, says Prime Minister Freundel Stuart.
Government is investing more than $16 million into the polyclinic’s construction and today relaunched the project before an audience that included St John Member of Parliament?Mara Thompson, president of the Senate Sir Branford Taitt, members of Cabinet and people of St John.
The Prime Minister said he was delighted that the project, which almost 20 years ago ground to a halt “in tempestuous and turbulent economic times”, would be a reality.
Thompson, in her address, said she was grateful to Cabinet for pursuing the project which was the brainchild of her husband, former Prime Minister and St John MP, David Thompson. (MK)
