Details

With a Maternity Ward of four rooms and a Medical/Surgical Ward comprising of twelve rooms, St.Clair Medical Centre opened its doors on December 31, 1993. Apart from being used as a storage area, the top floor as well as the basement areas were not utilized, and the Ward located on the ground floor was also unoccupied. At that time the service provided by the Casualty Department during the day was intermittent as a Doctor was on call, and between the hours of 6:00 pm to midnight a Doctor was scheduled. From midnight to 6:00 am the said Doctor was on call.

 

February 13, 1994, marked the opening of the Accident and Emergency Department, which operated on a 24-hour basis, with a full complement of staff comprising of on-site Doctors, Nurses, Orderlies, as well as Receptionists. Consultants in every field were also on-call 24-hour per day. Coming quickly on the heels of the Accident and Emergency Department was the Surgical Ward in March 1994, as well as a state-of-the-art Dental Clinic headed by Dr. Nigel Camacho. A new refurbished Maternity Ward with an additional private room then opened in May 1994.
