There is more development coming to another tourism destination in the Stann Creek West division. Placencia is getting a new polyclinic. Tourism Minister Anthony Mahler says that that community needs an adequate medical facility to serve visitors and residents alike.

Anthony Mahler, Minister of Tourism & Diaspora Relations

“Health services are important. People want to know that they have access to medical facilities when they go to a destination. Placencia is one of the bigger destinations in the country for tourism purposes and so we believe that that area – a part of the entire tourism product – it is important for us to build a proper health facility there. It comes from a fund that we put aside from Harvest Caye, a small portion of the head tax goes into that fund and it was built over time. And so we are spending the money on a polyclinic in Placencia.”

Duane Moody

“A timeline to seeing that completed?”

Anthony Mahler

“One year from now.”

New Polyclinic for Placencia Village

The Ministry of Health & Wellness in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations; Hon. Rodwell Ferguson, Area Representative for Stann Creek West; and the Placencia Village Council, today held a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a new polyclinic in Placencia.

The $2.486 million project is financed by the Tourism Development Fund established for the destination. The 5,650 sq. foot building will include consultation rooms, reception and registration areas, waiting rooms, an asthma bay, pharmacy, two triage rooms, laboratory, shock/trauma rooms. The polyclinic is expected to provide quality healthcare to southern communities and visitors who travel to these destinations in steadily increasing numbers.

In his address, Hon. Kevin Bernard, Minister of Health & Wellness, emphasized the critical importance of collaboration between government, municipalities and private entities in projects that will provide beneficial impacts to communities. He said, “This project will provide not only superior healthcare to our people, but will increase the attractiveness of these destinations to tourists, resulting in benefit to these communities and to the nation.”

The Ministry of Health & Wellness will manage the facility and provide the staff and technical requirements, while the Belize Tourism Board will manage the disbursement of the funds. The Placencia Village Council provided the land for the facility.

Placencia has become a leading tourism destination in Belize, and with the new growth in local and foreign visitors has come a need for critically relevant infrastructure. Following a successful collaboration which saw the paving of an important stretch of road in nearby Hopkins, the Belize Tourism Board is now partnering with the Ministry of Health & Wellness and the Placencia Village Council to build a new polyclinic in Placencia. Government and municipal stakeholders recently broke ground for the state-of-the-art facility with Hon. Anthony Mahler, Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, expressing that the new polyclinic only adds to an already almost perfect package that is Belize.
