New infirmary facility opens in Portland
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.
