St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Premier and Senior Minister of Health on Nevis, Mark Brantley, says an additional US$500,000.00 (EC$1,350,000.00) was incurred for the expansion works ongoing at the Alexandra Hospital.
“I don’t want to misspeak. I believe that the numbers I saw were just over half a million US dollars that the cost was for the additional work…,” Brantley said in response to a question posed at his October 06 press conference.
The Senior Health Minister said the Nevis Island Administration expects the project to be completed by 2022 but stopped short of providing a specific date.
A $19 million dollar budget was set for the Alexandra Hospital Expansion Project that broke ground more than four years ago on May 31, 2017.
