KINGSTON, Jamaica – The People’s National Party (PNP) said in a release Monday evening that it is pleased to hear that Dr Ken Baugh successfully underwent his brain surgery and is recovering.
“Dr Baugh placed his faith and life in the hands of the Jamaican health system that has been so harshly criticised of late. It is an endorsement of the high regard in which he, a Jamaican physician, holds his country’s medical facilities and professionals.
“We are delighted that Ken Baugh is reportedly doing well and we wish him a speedy and complete recovery,” PNP General Secretary Paul Burke said.
According to newspaper reports, the surgery was performed on Friday by a team of Jamaican surgeons at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).
We also congratulate the team of expert local physicians in whom he placed his trust and confidence, the PNP said.
A former Cabinet member in the JLP Administration, Dr Baugh served as deputy prime minister and minister of foreign affairs and foreign trade.
