A state-of-the-art facility, built to accommodate 54 wards of the State at the Portland Infirmary, was declared open yesterday by Local Government Minister Desmond McKenzie.
The new wing is now home to 19 female residents and replaces the old wooden structure which was demolished in February. The ministry allocated $15 million for the construction.
McKenzie said he was impressed with the quality of work, noting that there were several delays, including those caused by the inclement weather.

The earthen drain along Germaine Road in Portmore is owned by the Municipality of Portmore…
After submission of the subdivision application for Westmeade Willows by the Housing Agency of Jamaica in 2010, the Council presented its concerns and highlighted the inadequacy of the drain for such a development.
The Municipality was awarded the First Place Trophy for the map titled “Portmore’s Exposure to Storm Surge”. The map illustrated the possible impact of storm surge on landuse activities and critical facilities within the Municipality and hopes to influence disaster planning, mitigation strategies and achieve disaster risk reduction for the Municipality.
