Moriah Health Centre Opens Its Doors
The Moriah Health Centre is now open to clients, following a Key Handing-Over Ceremony yesterday (September 30th).
Secretary of the Division of Health, Wellness and Family Development (DHWFD) Assemblyman Tracy Davidson-Celestine said the services being offered will benefit residents from a wide geographic area.
“The Moriah Health Centre will make it easier for people in Tobago east to come and get services closer to home,” said Davidson-Celestine.
“It’s not just about today, we are planning for the future. COVID has also done us some favours, testing how well we are prepared, and now more than ever health and wellness has to be the focus of all of our lives going forward. We are focusing on ensuring that we keep people safe and healthy. And as an administration, we’re focused on ensuring that we provide the services to the people of Tobago,” she added.
The sod was turned for the Centre in August 2018 and the building was completed in December 2020.
Healthcare services available from today are: Ambulance, Antenatal, Child Health, Walk-In, and the Pharmacy.
The Urban Development Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (UDeCOTT) was the project manager responsible for construction of the Health Centre, in addition to the procurement and installation of medical equipment, furniture and fixtures. It was completed at an approximate cost of 27 million dollars.
