The Prime Minister said the completion of the hospital was the recognition of a dream for the people of Point Fortin who told him when he campaigned in 2015 that their Borough was neglected.

Dr Rowley said the people of Point Fortin also stand to benefit from ongoing work at the Mahaica Oval, the Point Fortin Fire Station and the Techier Community Centre.

Point Fortin Mayor, His Worship Kennedy Richards Jr said more than 60 percent of the persons employed during the construction of the hospital were from the Borough.
