May Pen Hospital to accept only emergency cases this weekend

The May Pen Hospital in Clarendon is advising that it will only be accepting emergency cases this coming weekend.

The Southern Eastern Regional Health Authority (SERHA) has indicated that this will obtain from 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 28, until 8:00 a.m. on Monday, October 1.

The authority said the move is to facilitate the installation of a new ducting system at the hospital.

“The management team of the MPH is encouraging persons to utilise the other health facilities within Clarendon,” SERHA said in a statement.

"The team apologises for the inconvenience that may arise, and craves the understanding of clients as they (team members) seek to enhance service delivery and ensure the continued safety of clients and staff," the authority added.
