Uncertainty about additional costs for new hospital
WILLEMSTAD - It is not clear how high the cost for the construction of the new hospital, the Hospital Nobo Otrobanda will be. This appears from answers from the Minister of Public Health Siegfried Victorina to questions from parliament.
The Minister also said that it is unclear who is responsible when it comes to the transition from the old to the new hospital.
For the Minister it is also not clear about a possible claim of the construction company Ballast Nedam and how much this will be. Previously the development foundation SONA requested 78 million guilders to cover additional costs.
But whether this amount will cover the addition costs or if SONA will need more, is, according to the Minister, currently unclear.
