The Milton Cato Memorial Hospital will be transformed into a Maternal Child and Health Centre of Excellence once the state-of-the-art Acute Care Hospitalis opened.

Speaking at a press briefing earlier yesterday, August 9th 2022, Minister of Health Hon. St. Clair Prince said the Government would still utilize the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital in this capacity along with services offered by the World Pediatric Project, as they seek to reform the delivery of healthcare in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Minister Prince explained that the Acute Care Hospital is more than just the mere construction of a building but “will be a gamechanger in terms of the delivery of health services in this country….and embodies probably the entire health system here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.”
