The Minister of Health and Wellness, the Hon. Dr. Michael Darville gave an update on the government’s plans to build a new hospital on the island of New Providence.

Darville spoke with reporters outside of the House of Assembly saying, “the geotechnical studies of the rock is near completion. I don’t want to make an announcement and find out we have cavernous holes underneath the ground that’s very important for us and the topographic study. But I feel confident that he site that we’re looking at now looks like it would be the potential site and once that’s completed and Cabinet makes the final decision, we will have to go into some meetings with communities that are in close proximity because there’s no massive amount of land anywhere in New Providence that’s just sitting by itself, its always close to residential communities and communities need to know exactly what our plans would be.”
