With all the money spending in San Pedro, by foreigners, will any be spent to build a Hospital or at least a medical clinic. With out a hospital or any medical emergency facilities, and the nearest hospital is in Belize city,which is not the best to go to. and the nearest US state is about 2 hours away, and you might not make it Mianmi in time, to seek medical treatments, so why not just invest some of those million, and million of dollars that is been pour into North side of San Pedro by these foreign investors, why some of that money is not invested building a facility for all the tourist who call Belize their home away from home, you might come to need it one day. With all who come to Belize and visit San Pedro and Casye Caukler yearly, I know some are in the medical field, you come and fall in love with our hiden Jewel, so why not volunteer some service to the Paradize Island. Volunteer some services doctors, and nurses or any one in the medical field, it will payoff in the longer run. Someone need to have a word with the mayor about real emergency on her "Paradize Island"

Camry, I see that you are a new poster. If you did a search you would see that this is a topic that has been discussed many times without a good solution. It is also a lot more involved than just getting the mayor on board. Volunteers are another problem because you need permits, certification, ect. In short this is a very complicated problem which would require a lot of government support and a lot of money.

If you can help solve this problem good for you, a lot of people would be very happy. Especially me as a retired person who winters here. wink

We do have a clinic and we have doctors on call 24/7 (supposedly.) There are also at least 6 doctors private clinics that operate on the island.

Indeed we desperately need a medical facility.

The millions of dollars invested by developers are in the private sector not public.

There are some private hospital groups looking at San Pedro to place their private hospitals/clinics, but they would also be bringing in their patients and would probably not be able to accommodate local patients (politics and money play a role in these reasons.)
