Hospital not on Amstel property

HospitalWILLEMSTAD – The Amstel property was finally dropped as the site for the new hospital. These is what the coalition partners agreed on. Instead, the new hospital will be built on the site where the St. Elisabeth Hospital (Sehos) now stands. However, there are some conditions attached to building the new hospital on the Sehos-site. Thus, there must be a safeguard, which Sehos and not the government should be held responsible for any damage caused during construction.

There is also a committee that monitors the construction and the cost. For the cancellation of the construction on the Amstel property, the government is currently consulting on the collection of any claims. This opinion is a second opinion on the advice given earlier by Sector Director for General Affairs Norberto Ribeiro. In addition, a formal decision on the commencement of the construction on the grounds at Sehos was taken. If that decision is taken, within four months of construction will start.
