Plans have been finalised, and Government is looking forward to advancing the construction of a climate resilient, smart hospital in the community of Marigot.

At a press briefing last Wednesday, the Hon Prime Minister, Dr Roosevelt Skerrit informed that the Government of Mexico has committed to funding the new hospital.

“We have finalised on our end all of the documents… to submit to the Government of Mexico and we are very grateful to them for their continued commitment, and so we look forward to advancing the construction of this hospital that is needed even more now than prior to Hurricane Maria,” Hon Skerrit said.

The intention is for the hospital to have its independent water and power systems if Dominica is faced with another natural disaster.

The Mexican Government made a commitment of $27 million at the recently held donors’ conference. 

Hon Skerrit says it remains to be determined the amount Dominica will receive from this pledge.
