Following the passage of Hurricane Dorian, works are continuing to restore the infrastructure at the Rand Memorial Hospital (RMH) in Freeport, Grand Bahama.
Electrical supply from Grand Bahama Power Company (GBPC) has been restored at RMH following inspections by the Grand Bahama Port Authority Technical Division. GBPC has also supplied a 1.5MVA prime generator onsite at the hospital to provide primary power to RMH as hurricane recovery efforts continue.
Non-potable water has been restored to the RMH. The hospital has experienced no difficulty with providing drinking water to patients and staff. Areas and individuals were provided with a case each of water as a result of donations.
The Outpatients Care Point housed under a tent outside of the Emergency Room, which is usually manned by medical and nursing staff, was not staffed for services on Saturday, September 7.
Persons at this care point were provided water once a request was made.
On Abaco, infrastructural assessments have been completed at the Marsh Harbour Health Centre, with infrastructure systems repaired, restored or decommissioned where appropriate. Parts and systems lists are being prepared to facilitate the required restorations.
