NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Princess Margaret Hospital patients from the Medical Block will be transferred to Doctor’s Hospital on Blake Road in a $2 million deal as major upgrades are set to begin tomorrow at the aging public facility.

Minister of Health Dr. Michael Darville yesterday said the upgrades will take about 14 weeks to complete.

“Effective Monday, we will start the process and get our contractors here at the Princess Margret Hospital to improve the delivery of quality healthcare services at the Princess Margret Hospital,” Darville said.

“We estimate the 14-week negotiated cost factors will be somewhere between $2 million to $2.5 million, which we believe is very reasonable when we take into consideration the cost of managing the same patient room here at the Princess Margaret Hospital for that.”
