The Savanna-la-Mar Hospital in Westmoreland now has a brand new $29 million boiler system and room.

Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr Christopher Tufton officially commissioned the system for use last week. The project was funded by the National Health Fund (NHF).

“The new boiler unit ensures stability in executing various functions at the Type B facility and therefore positively affects service delivery which is an area of focus for the Fund. The NHF is always pleased to play an integral role in supporting the agenda of the MOHW and the Regional Health Authorities in improving healthcare in Jamaica,” Everton Anderson, the NHF's CEO, said.

Also in the western region, the NHF is providing funding for the renovation of the Cambridge Health Centre at a value of $59.31 million, and the upgrading of the electrical system at the Falmouth General Public Hospital, a $55.36 million undertaking.
