A meeting is planned in Marigot this afternoon to discuss the closure of the Marigot Hospital.
The meeting is to take place at the Marigot Credit Union Conference Room at 5:30 pm.
DNO understands the hospital was shut down and all health concerns are being addressed at the Wesley Health Center.
The Marigot Hospital was first shut down in 2014 because of a severe termite infestation.
At a press conference on May 6, 2015, Health Minister, Dr. Kenneth Darroux said a new hospital for Marigot is on the cards because it is a policy decision of the government.
“Building a new hospital for Marigot is still a policy decision that the government has undertaken,” he said. “If you look at the Labour Party administration manifesto, a new hospital for Marigot is to be built for a number of reasons.”
Meanwhile, MP for Marigot Lennox Linton said that the government is using the Marigot Hospital to play politics with the United Workers Party.
“So the Marigot Hospital now has become an avenue where they are hoping to embarrass Lennox Linton by talking about whether or not he is representing the interest of his constituency,” he said on Q95 on Wednesday.
Many callers to the Q95 said they will be taking action to have the matter addressed.
DNO is following this developing story and will publish information as it becomes available.
