District Medical Officer Dr. Norgen Wilson says residents of Sandy Point and surrounding communities are looking forward to the completion of the new Pogson Hospital.
“The decision was a good idea by the government to pull down the dilapidated wooden structure and replace it with a modern building,” the Cuban-trained physician said following a tour of the construction site by Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas, Minister of Health, Hon. Rupert Herbert and officials of the Ministry of Health and the Public Works Department.
“Residents of Sandy Point and surrounding communities are very excited to see that we will soon be having a new hospital,” said Dr. Wilson, who has been District Medical Officer for the past 18 months serving the people of Sandy Point, and surrounding areas including Newton Ground, Half Way Tree, Godwin Gut, Conyers, Lamberts, Middle Island, Verchilds and Old Road.
