Remarks By Premier At The Contract Signing And Groundbreaking Ceremony For The Construction Of The Nurse Iris O'Neal Medical Centre

Tuesday, 31 March 2015 - 10:00am

Residents and friends of Virgin Gorda, Good Afternoon:

In earlier days it was the most recent doctor to join the health service who was sent to hold clinics in the sister Islands

In 1969, as a young man returning home to start my career as a medical officer, taking care of patients in Virgin Gorda was among my first duties

During those visits I often thought about what it would be like if Virgin Gorda had its own medical facility that could offer a good range of services and extended hours to its people.
