spot_img

The Government of Saint Lucia, led by Prime Minister Hon. Philip J. Pierre, is nearing its goal to relocate St. Jude Hospital operations from the George Odlum National Stadium to the original construction site to restore dignity to the delivery of essential medical care and secondary health services in the island’s south.

Prime Minister Pierre led a delegation of government stakeholders to receive a firsthand progress report on the ongoing St. Jude Hospital Reconstruction Project (SJHRP) during a recent visit to the original (Phase I) construction site on September 6, 2023.

  1. Looks to me like a bunch of hapless persons, like blind mise each saying how terrible the first attempt was, and how they are happily to continue to spend the borrowed $2,Mill. to rectify the failed attempt; well time will tell; hope tomorrow they wont have to face another Banker to finish the unpleasantness.
    (do you know what it is to build a HOSPITAL?)
    (Didn’t they have Architectural & Engineers approved professional Drawings)
    (Why at this late stage, Wires Elec & A.C. not built hidden within walls?)
    (Architects drawings should locate Plumbing for washrooms & Fountains)
    (Fire Alarms, Exit Door lights, Security Lights & Alarms, Nurses Stations)
    Why did you have to borrow; how about the original Estimate, Expenditure?
    Why so many Buildings for one Hospital? each different Roofs
    different Foundations, Entrances, Roadway, Electrical Power, Sewer, waste.
    Final Terminals for (Bath, Kitchen water etc)-(Surgery & Toilet waste)
    I could go on, but I’ll stop now. MAY ST. LUCIA BE BLESSED MIGHTILY.

  2. We lucians eh even want updates and status of progress on stjudes anymore…..we just want to hear it is commissioned and opened for medical care! That is effing allllll!!!

  3. Things that make me pause in this video

    2. “Mr Rayneau would not have started this if he couldn’t finish” 😔

    2. For the first time we have secured funds for this project- Go ahead and trivialize the mismanaged money pumped into this project to the tune of over $200m doesn’t count because it was not a “loan”

    3. Wow just wow King. This guy has no shame. Sans honte King! You’re part of the problem. Prime Minister then Minister of Infrastructure for a total of approx. 10 years and still couldnt get it done.

    4. A project has started with funds @allocated and the timeline is “In the shortest possible time”

    5. Is that the Paul Hilaire that is the Minister’s brother brought in from retirement to head the Ministry or is that someone else?

    6. I see Pierre still trying to politicize this hospital thing asking the Contractor leading questions to again deflect from the lack of substantial progress on the building and the ill advised moved to go back to a hospital that can hardly meet our current needs now fearless for 10 years later

  4. ITS A SHAME THAT PPL HAVE TO BE IN A STADIUM FOR SO LONG, WHEN WE HAVE MILLIONS BEING BORROWED TO FIX OR COMPLETE THE ORIGINAL HOSPITAL. THAT SHOULD BE TOP PRIORITY FOR ST LUCIANS, ST LUCIA IS BEHIND WHAT IS GOING ON. ALL FETES BOAT RIDES ALL INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS, BANDS AND GROUPS, BEING PAID TO PERFORM. OUR MONEY NEEDS TO REGENERATE ON THE ISLAND, AND USED THE PROPER WAY.
