Health Officials Visit La Resource Health & Wellness Centre


Officials of the Ministry of Health, Wellness and Elderly Affairs conducted a site visit to the La Resource Health and Wellness Centre on Friday March 11, 2023.

This site visit was led by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer and the Corporate Planning Unit. The Centre was ravaged by fire in March, 2015 resulting in all of the services previously provided to be relocated to the Richfond Wellness Centre.

During the tour of the site, the clinical users of the center were allowed an opportunity to review the existing structure and provide recommendations to the technical officers present as to the physical, technical and logistical needs which should be taken into consideration during the design and construction of the new facility earmarked to begin within the new financial year.

The staff were most grateful that after 8 years, the process of them moving back to the La Resource Wellness Centre has been initiated, and will provide much needed access to health services to residents.

Ministry officials present at the site visit were Deputy Permanent Secretary – Mrs. Tessa Inglis, Chief Medical Officer – Dr. Sharon Belmar- George, Medical Officer of Health – Dr. Glensford Joseph, Senior Dental Surgeon – Dr. Sherry Ephraim – Le Compte, PNO – Nurse Julietta Frederick – Cassius, PNO Dennery Hospital – Nurse Alcindor, PHNS – Nurse Reynolds, Chief Health Planner – Ms. Lauren Blanchard, Engineer – Monty Emmanuel, Engineer – Wendell Bernard, Biomedical Engineer – Lucas Poleon, Quality Assurance Officer – Heidi Jaganath and Quality Assurance Officer – Len Leonce.

Financing for this project will be provided by the Government of Saint Lucia to the tune of XCD$500,000.00
