Development of Jamaica’s Facilities

The month of June Presented Jamaica with the urgent call to upgrade its Facilities. Both the Cornwall Regional Hospital and the Tower Street Adult Correctional Center were affected by two very recent disasters, Heavy rains, and a large fire, respectively. Upgrading these facilities will promote a higher standard of living for those affected by the disaster.

$1.3 Billion has been put towards the development of the Hospital which will be financed by the government. This is a part of a wider initiative to upgrade hospitals across the country. This process started after the ventilation system began emitting noxious fumes.  This affected three floors of the hospital and as such patients had to be moved to makeshift locations on the compound. Evidently, this would cause a strain on the quality of heath care provided as well as caused frustration among the employees of the hospital.

The Tower Street facility was engulfed in flames in early June which lead to the government looking towards improving specific correctional institutions located around the Island.

The institution houses 1,500 prisoners, which encapsulate a variety of individuals including the Mentally Ill, as well as high- profile Inmates such as Vybz Kartel

However, It has been taken into account that Several of the island’s facilities are in need of urgent infrastructural development and the government is seeking to take action to make these improvements.

The question is how long do you think it will take?
