The Ministry of Health hereby informs the General Public that with effect from Thursday, March 1st 2018 there has been temporary relocation of departments/wards at the Princess Alice Hospital, at Mirabeau, St. Andrew.
The relocation process resulted in the moving of the Maternity Ward to the Paediatric Ward which is adjacent to the casualty department, and the Paediatric Ward to the private section near to the Male Ward.

The Hospital managers are advising all persons visiting the maternity ward to do so via the entrance leading to the Accident and Emergency department, ONLY.

The (MOH) also encourages all patients, visitors and staff alike to exercise extreme caution when visiting the facility while the redevelopment works continue. The Ministry sincerely apologizes for the inconveniences that are likely to be caused.
