AARON HUMES Reporting: 2013 was a year to forget for the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, chiefly because of the bacterial outbreak at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) which claimed 8 lives before they had a chance to truly live.
Since then money has poured in, both for renovations to the current unit and a new unit.
Today public relations manager for KHMH Niall Gillett said renovations are coming along fine and size has been expanded. And from the inside to the outside, the hospital’s parking lot is the latest addition to Belize City’s concrete revolution.
That is near completion, and when the installations are complete the hospital will implement its plans to charge for parking to all non-patients and staff and provide a slot for taxi operators to work in.
The renovations to the parking lot cost $256,000 and the NICU upwards of $6 million, mostly raised in donations solicited through the Office of the Special Envoy for Women and Children Kim Simplis-Barrow and her Lifeline Foundation.
