Plans for new medical campus to service globe

A new state-of-the-art “boutique” medical campus, which will provide surgical and diagnostic care for local, regional and international patients, is slated for Barbados.

Word of this came from developers, Universal Medical Advance Centre Inc., who have earmarked 13 acres of land at Kent, Christ Church (east of the Wildey Gymnasium) as the proposed site.

In a release, they said it will consist of an ultramodern surgical hospital offering general, plastic and specialised surgeries as well as cardiology and urology procedures.

The developers said the advanced campus would be Joint Commission International-accredited and certified to ensure the highest health care standards are maintained.

They added it would not only offer significantly improved medical services for Barbadians, but also create over 400 jobs and raise the island’s medical care profile in the expanding “health tourism” market.

They did not say when construction was expected to begin, and conclude. (PR)
