The Stony Hill Health Centre has been selected to benefit from the second phase of the Pan American Health Organisation and World Health Organisation PAHO/WHO Smart Health Care Facilities Project. The aim of the project is to provide a safer and greener health facility, which operates more efficiently, and are more resilient to disasters.
The plans for the project were disclosed during a Town Hall Meeting held on Monday, November 12, 2018 to sensitise Stony Hill residents. During the meeting, Mr. Francois Munda, Project Architect, GW Architect Limited explained that proper roofing, lighting and plumbing repairs will be installed at the Stony Hill Health Centre to enable the facility to become more resilient to disasters. He said the health centre has already been assessed by the PAHO team and structural safety and energy efficiency measures will be implemented to reduce water and energy costs. The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
The project is being funded by the United Kingdom Department for International Development, and is being implemented by PAHO/WHO in collaboration with Health Ministries in the targeted countries. The other facilities that will be retrofitted across the island as part of the Smart Health Care Facilities Project includes, the Port Antonio Health Centre, St. Ann’s Bay Health Centre, Mandeville Health Centre and Santa Cruz Health Centre.
