China to fund hospital.

CHINA TO FUND HOSPITAL. Trinidad & Tobago will have a new children's hospital by the year 2015, funded through "a government to government arrangement" with China, reports Caribbean News Now (June 3, 2013). It will be built in Couva and cost US$150 million (TT$975m). It will include a rooftop helipad for emergencies and a multi-training centre for medicine, nursing and pharmacology. Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar said the hospital is very close to her heart. It will have 230 beds, a burns care unit, a central pharmacy, children's and adult's casualty clinic. With a promised completion date of March 2015, it is a design-finance-construct model and the Urban Development Corp. of Trinidad & Tobago (UDeCOTT) will supervise the construction.
