Frankie Paul facing serious medical challenges in hospital
Created : 16 May 2017
The family of veteran entertainer Frankie Paul is facing a growing challenge to handle his medical condition, which has reportedly resulted in a pile-up of unpaid bills.
The gifted singer, seemingly with a voice like none other, has been admitted to the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) since April of this year, and his family is now seeking public assistance to care for him and defray the mounting expenses.
Indications are that the family has an outstanding bill of almost $1.5 million for the hospital, and is now facing an additional weekly cost of $40,000 for dialysis treatment for the visually-impaired artiste because his kidneys are malfunctioning.
It is understood that Paul’s body has become swollen because of the kidney failure.
Compounding the twice weekly $20,000 dialysis treatment that has been prescribed for him, is the ever-present cost for his stay in the intensive care unit at the hospital.
