Nassau, Bahamas - The country’s leading trauma centre, the Princess Margaret Hospital, will get 6 additional new operating theatres and the Intensive Care Unit will increase its bed count from 12 to 24 as further efforts are made to encourage patients to utilize outpatient health clinics. These statements coming from the Minister of Health, the Hon. Dr. Hubert Minnis as he addressed the Charter and Induction ceremony for Toastmasters Visionary Communicators, Club 1512075 on Thursday evening.

The remarks came as he highlighted the “health bridge to the future” a part of his vision for a better Bahamas. Dr. Minnis  revealed that although a new hospital is needed, those plans have been placed on hold as a result of the current economic environment. He said despite this reality, the Ministry of Health, is embracing technology to enhance health care in the country with the advancement of tele-medicine and tele-radiology that allows patients to have access to quality health care throughout the country 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
