Since then, money has poured in, both for renovations to the current unit and a new unit.
Today public relations manager for KHMH Niall Gillett invited PLUS News to be the first media house to see how the renovations are coming along. He told us tha tthere is nota date for opening as yet, but the renovations are well on the way. From the inside to the outside, the hospital’s parking lot is the latest addition to Belize City’s concrete revolution. Gillett updates on its progress.
“Correct. As you can see the parking lot has been dramatically improved. The location has been cemented in the trend that is going on in the city. There are a few more things ready to be done, like the painting of the lines, etc.; There is some flora that is still going to be in the parking lot. In itself, it looks very beautiful and then when it is finished. There are control mechanisms that have to be put in”.
The renovations to the parking lot cost $256,000 and the NICU upwards of $6 million, mostly raised in donations solicited through the Office of the Special Envoy for Women and Children Kim Simplis-Barrow and her Lifeline Foundation.
