WATCH: Ministry of Health Collaborates On St Jude Reconstruction


The Ministry of Health, Wellness and Elderly Affairs will work collaboratively with sister agencies, namely the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Ministry of Economic Development to oversee the new St. Jude reconstruction project.

According to Prime Minister Hon. Philip J. Pierre, the selection of the site for reconstruction was based on the recommendations of a Technical Committee charged with that responsibility, with no prodding from his Cabinet of Ministers.

The first phase of this round of works has commenced following a short ceremony on Tuesday, 01November, 2022.

  1. In this modern atmosphere. I need someone in this government team including of health officials or lay person to show me a hospital built in the last 10 years which looks like that building they want to continue. It’s so sad. Frederick is one of those ppl I believe has excellent taste and comprehension when it comes to building. Look at his building on chisel st.. look at serenity Park. Modern as it gets. So please.

  2. I want PIP to know that it is not just the contractor that determines the success of the project–its the project management team and especially the project Manager! I see those from the far east representing the contractor- who will manage them espec. when they start speaking their native tongue on the job? Hope SLP learned alot from their Last project manager under Kenny on St. Judes who made an epic mess out of the project!

  3. What the hell, you mean of all the Building contractors there are in these Caribbean Islands, one has to employ far East guys to do work In St. Lucia? I smell a rat.
    @ George P. thank you for telling us; it shows that when these guys want to hide their dark and secret dealings, they make sure it remains secret with foreign far east workers. So that started even under the Kenny Admin; no wonder they made it a cheap job in the first place, a cheap job under a faulty Design for what was not meant to be a modern Hospital, that Structure built on the cheap because it was meant to be temporary, under a war time condition. After the failure after the fire, all was required was a patch up job, not a Hospital in the South. Chastanet came in, and contracted to build a Modern Hospital, Your silly small minded politics got in the way and you are back to spend Millions on a failed project. Good luck Buddy – Hasta la Vista baby – you’re done. After all, I pray God to help St. Lucia Prosper

  4. …….what’s not “modern” about the hospital?? It does not have Chastanet Heliport build in?? AND??? ….. suddenly everybody is a *%$#@ architect and engineer, as if to say The PM is stupid to go out and hire Jhon Tom to finish St Jude’s…..stop trying to undermine the man’s intellect you Jackass. When your Coolie Man was in charge and spent ECD$ One Million on assessment ONLY you never had a problem did you?? Well SLP hire their own Coolie Man so there, there, there.

  5. Good Pierre Changes
    Reasons your statements with God fearing ! Therefore,prepare your mind for action and escape corruptions of those who loves wages of ‘unfaithfulness’.
    May the LORD brings everything under his control. Move on !!
