Prime Minister Donates Wheelchairs To Health Facilities In His Constituency

PR – Grenada’s Prime Minister and Parliamentary  Representative for the Constituency of St. David, the Hon. Dickon Mitchell, donated ten (10)  new wheelchairs to the St. David’s Health District on Wednesday. 

The much-needed durable medical equipment was presented to Health, Wellness, and  Religious Affairs Minister, Sen. the Hon. Jonathan LaCrette, by Agriculture, Lands, Fisheries  and Cooperatives Minister, Sen. the Hon Adrian Thomas, who represented Prime Minister  Mitchell on February 22, 2023, at the ribbon cutting ceremony that marked the reopening of  the Westerhall Medical Station.  

The St. David Health District comprises the St. David’s Health Center at Bellevue, and the  Perdmontemps, Crochu, Westerhall, and Vincennes Medical Stations. All five government operated health services facilities will be outfitted with 2 wheelchairs each, to aid in the daily  operations, specifically with respect to patient access to services.  

Minister LaCrette, who graciously accepted the wheelchairs, then invited Nurse Phebe  Antoine, the District Nurse in charge of the St. David Health District to receive the chairs  from him and ensure that they’re put into proper use.  

The kind gesture from the Grenadian leader was applauded by residents and those in  attendance at the ceremonial reopening of the Westerhall Medical Station.
