PRESS RELEASE – THE Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) calls on the government to immediately make a definitive statement on the future of the St. Jude Hospital.
The SLP notes the conflicting positions by the Allen Chastanet-led administration on the reconstruction of the hospital since assuming office.
The SLP is horrified by the statement made by Heath Minister, Mary Isaac, on September 14, which was broadcasted island-wide, on the complete demolition of the hospital which was actively under construction when the UWP assumed office in June 2016.
SLP spokesman on Health, Moses Jn. Baptiste, also notes the hundreds of Saint Lucians who have either called or written to express their shock at the recent announcements by Isaac.
