New pharma clinic.
The opening of El Amal Health Clinic, the island's first
pharma-clinic chain, marks the beginning of a new era in healthcare
services here, reports Caribbean Business (Feb. 12, 2009). The first El
Amal clinic, within the El Amal drugstore on Pinero Ave, just opened.
The new clinic is the first of eight locations El Amal plans to
inaugurate this year, said Mohammad Yassin, president of El Amal
drugstores and the second generation of his family at the helm of the
business. The new Health Clinic required a US$1 million investment to
bring to fruition.
