Government now wants to buy the Cancer Centre for 6-9 million dollars



The Cabinet held discussions on acquisition of the Cancer Centre at a cost that reflects the valuation undertaken by the Governments’ Valuation Officer.

While the owner was demanding $15 million USD; the valuation concluded that it is valued between $6 and $9 million EC Dollars.

The land on which the Cancer Centre is built is the Crown’s. The Centre has incurred liability of $6.9 EC Million.

Should the Government acquire, there would be a need for both personnel and additional equipment.

Nurses with the expertise are available and there are two doctors available to operate there; they are all ready to begin.

All the equipment has depreciated and would have to be separately assessed.

  1. Buy it yes, if the negotiations are right but two doctors alone. That’s in its self is a problem. We don’t have enough doctors to run the hospital much less the cancer center. Antigua need to have more incentives that make ppl actually wanna to come bk n serve the ppl. This is a disgrace.
