Completion of new hospital planned on March 31, 2019

hospitalWILLEMSTAD - The new hospital will be delivered functionally on 31 March next year. Whether this actually succeeds depends on the training and accommodation. The general director of the New Hospital Otrabanda (HNO) Gilbert Martina reported yesterday during a press conference.

Once the time has come, the hospital will be called Curaçao Medical Center. In mid-December, a part of the new hospital will be delivered technically, another part in mid-February.

Some 40 million guilders are still needed for the completion of the hospital, but according to Martina it is going to be possible to achieve this; he expects that this can be arranged within two weeks. In the meantime, a large team is working hard to prepare for the transition from SEHOS (current general hospital) to the new hospital, in particular, expertise from the Netherlands is called in.

In addition, 1,150 employees are starting next month with a training in change management and leadership.
