A hospital in San Pedro Town has been perhaps one of the most anticipated infrastructural projects islanders have been long awaiting. The rapid growth of the municipality has many island residents wanting a proper medical facility, which Area Representative and Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Honourable Manuel Heredia Jr., hopes to complete by the end of his term in 2020.

Heredia has not provided further details on the hospital, in the recent times but the project was a promise made in the UDP manifesto prior to the general elections in 2015. It is unknown and Heredia has not confirmed if the government is going to make a loan for such project as it is unclear if it will be included at the upcoming budget presentation on Friday, March 9th. Back in 2015, it was revealed that a $20 million investment would be needed to erect the hospital and Heredia announced that same year that Central Government was moving one step closer to completing a loan application to fund the hospital building. According to Heredia the MOH had done its due diligence to get the ball rolling regarding such project. Heredia mentioned then that the project would see the construction of a state-of-the-art hospital for the island. No timeline was set, but as far as Heredia has mentioned in various public events, the hospital is expected to be completed north of San Pedro Town within the next two years. Mayor Guerrero has re-affirmed this recently when he commented on Reef TV that Heredia intents to oversee the completion of the hospital before his current term in office is over.
