“Remember that I had indicated that we wanted to do some rehabilitation of the road going to North Ambergris as soon as you jump the bridge coming out of San Pedro Town we will resurface that road as it is I am not even sure if it qualifies for the appellation road it is more a dirt track but we are going to fix that up nicely and it is going to be from the bridge to about where Coco Beach Hotel, I think it’s a little over three miles of road so that is good news for San Pedro and I know they also complain and this is a different type of infrastructure but the need for a 24 hour Poly clinic and we are working on that with the ministry of health so I can promise the people that is going as well going to happen.”

Ambergris Hopes Medical Clinic to turn into 24 hours private medical center in November
Work has commenced for a much needed 24-hour private medical facility on Ambergris Caye. The confirmation came from one of the project partners Doctor Daniel Gonzalez of Ambergris Hopes Clinic. The project will be done in two phases, and the first is already in progress. The new medical facility is expected to address islanders’ long-standing demand for a 24-hour medical facility to service over 28,000 permanent and temporary residents, as well as its tourists. “I have been doing 24-hour medical service for the past 20 plus years. But really, this was a project I have always wanted to do in my medical career. With the growing population and the high influx of tourists, I have seen the need on the island for such an essential service. In that regard I have teamed up with other partners for this project,” said Gonzalez.
