Healthcare in the Toledo District is about access, particularly for those thousands
of residents living in far flung villages, across miles of unpaved roads. And
that’s what this clinic, the Isabel Palma Polylcinic in San Antonio Village
promises to provide for those residents. The clinic has forty five rooms, complete
with an Emergency treatment, Maternity and Nursing stations, nebulizing bays
and consultation rooms. It is also outfitted with X-Ray and Lab services as
well as a pharmacy.
It is part of the Health Sector Reform Project and is named after career nurse
Isabel Palma, whose daughter Kamela Palma is now Belize’s High Commissioner
to the United Kingdom.
