It was with great satisfaction that I announce today that our main tourism mecca and the people of San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye will soon have a hospital that can service the destination and it's growing population with the possibility to serve the nearby island community of Caye Caulker.

Taiwan Will Fund Hospital For San Pedro

The Taiwanese have agreed to gift the government a grant for a long awaited, long promised but never delivered new hospital in San Pedro.

The PM introduced it as the highlight of his speech:

Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister
"I am elated to formally announce a USD 16.8m grant from Taiwan for the design and construction of a new hospital for Ambergris Caye, that hospital to commence construction in this fiscal year."

"The new hospital will be a 45-bed, 28,000 square feet state of the art facility providing primary and secondary care services. Others before us made hollow promises to build this much needed facility. It is this PUP Government that will finally deliver for the people of Ambergris Caye and of Belize Rural South."

Prime Minister Brice�o announces hospital for San Pedro Town

As previously indicated by Area Representative Honourable Andre Perez regarding the securement of funds for building a hospital in San Pedro Town, on Tuesday, March 15th, it was confirmed that islanders would finally get the long-awaited medical facility. Prime Minister John Brice�o announced during his budget presentation saying that the financing for the island hospital is a $33 million grant from the people and government of the Republic of China (Taiwan).

A hospital for San Pedro has been in the pipeline from the days of the previous administration under the United Democratic Party. Construction of this needed health center goes back as far as 2011. Back then, authorities claimed that land had been secured and sought funding. Former Area Representative Manuel Heredia Jr. hoped to have constructed the hospital by the end of 2020. However, this did not happen due to the COVID-19 pandemic and change of government. Under the People's United Party, the current administration will make a hospital in Belize's prime tourism destination a reality. As the previous administration says, land has been located south of San Pedro Town and financing as well. With this in place, San Pedranos are sure to get the anticipated health care facility and put behind the days when patients need to be airlifted to the mainland for medical emergencies or extended care.
