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.
