$160 million hospital
PREPARATION for the construction of a BDS$160 million private hospital in Barbados will start within the next six months, says its head honcho Dr Paul Angelchik.
“We are currently engaged in site planning, physician recruiting, and fund-raising . . . . We plan to start making site improvement within the next six months, said Angelchik, the chairman and chief executive officer of American World Clinics Ltd (AWC), the company spearheading the project.
The facility, which will be built on the site of the old St Joseph’s Hospital, is projected to be opened between late 2013 and early 2014.
Around 200 workers should get jobs working on the first phase of the project’s construction, stated Rick Abbott, health care principal/vice-president of HDR Architecture Inc., an integrated health care planning and design firm which will be handling the architectural design, construction management and hospital management consulting for AWC.
