$51-m refurbishing project to begin on Nannyville Health Centre
KINGSTON, Jamaica — A $51-million contract was on Thursday signed to start renovation and refurbishing work on the Nannyville Health Centre in St Andrew, which has been out of use for more than 20 years.
According to a news release from the Ministry of Health, work on the building is expected to cost approximately $26.9 million with an additional $24.6 million used to purchase furniture and equipment.
Speaking at the contract signing today, Health Minister Dr Fenton Ferguson said that he was happy to note that by the end of July the health centre should be completed, as the building has remained idle for over 20 years.
Funding for the project, which is being carried out by Alphasure Structures and Roofing, is provided by the National Health Fund.
