Prime Minister Andrew Holness yesterday (Wed) broke ground for the construction of a multipurpose building at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in St. Andrew to house a paediatric cardiac ward and overnight parent suite.

The two-storey facility, to be built over the next two years at a cost of approximately $120 million, will be developed by the National Housing Trust NHT in partnership with the National Health Fund NHF and South East Regional Health Authority SERHA.

It is part of the hospital’s multimillion-dollar redevelopment master plan, which includes a newly established Drug Serv Pharmacy built by the NHF at a cost of approximately $70 million, which the Prime Minister also officially opened on Wednesday.
