The Ministry of Health (MOH) informs the general public that starting today Thursday, 1 March 2018 there would be a temporary relocation of departments/wards at the Princess Alice Hospital, at Mirabeau, St Andrew.
The relocation process would result in the moving of the Maternity Ward to the Paediatric Ward (adjacent to the Casualty department), and the Paediatric Ward to the private section near to the Male Ward. The relocation is to facilitate ongoing infrastructural upgrades currently taking place at the facility.
According to the hospital’s administration, the current upgrading of the facility is intended to enhance services delivery and ensure it can function effectively especially in times of disasters. The ‘Smart Hospital’ initiative is an international concept funded by the Government of Grenada, the United Kingdom Department for International Development and executed by the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO).
The hospital managers are advising all persons visiting the maternity ward to do so via the entrance leading to the Accident and Emergency department, ONLY.
Meanwhile, in light of the above, the MOH takes this opportunity to thank the public for its cooperation and understanding as it endeavours to upgrade and improve health services delivery at the hospital. The MOH also encourages all patients, visitors and staff alike to exercise extreme caution when visiting the facility while the redevelopment works continue.
The ministry sincerely apologises for the inconveniences that are likely to be caused.
