first_imgDr. Kenneth Darroux, Minister for Health and Social ServicesWork has commenced on the new Margot Hospital project with respect to clearing the site as steps are being taken to begin construction.This was announced by the Minister responsible for Health and Social Services, Dr. Kenneth Darroux during a press conference held on Tuesday 1 May 2018.“We are moving forward in Marigot. In fact, as we speak, work has started on clearing of the site at Marigot,” he said. Dr Darroux confirmed that clearing of the current Marigot Hospital site begun on Monday 30 April 2018 after permission was granted from the Environment Health Department.The clearing of the site is the Dominica Government’s contribution to the project while the Mexican Government will fund the construction of the hospital.It was announced in 2017, that funds for construction of the Marigot Hospital which was closed down due to termite infestation, will come from the Mexican Government in the sum of five million US dollars.“For the construction, we have received the clearance by Environmental Health; because that was one of the major reasons which caused us to shut down in the first instance was the issue of termite,” Dr Darroux indicated. He confirmed that the site has since been treated, and the Ministry of Health and Social Services has received “clearance from Pest Control and Environmental Health that the site is safe to rebuild”.Dr. Darroux further explained during Tuesday’s press conference that the process from commitment of funds to actually receiving it “is most times very tardy, very time consuming, lots of documents, lots of back and forth emails, lots of back and forth phone calls”.“So sometimes this process takes a little time, but finally we have gotten all of the ‘Is’ dotted and all of the ‘Ts’ crossed, and both sides would have agreed and we are moving forward with the Marigot Hospital,” he continued. Additionally, Dr Darroux informed clearing the site was one of the prerequisites that government had to undertake in order to receive the funds from the Mexican Government.
