Cornwall Regional lab closure extended

The Reopening of the Cornwall Regional Hospital, Montego Bay, St James laboratory, which was set for May 13, has been rescheduled to next Tuesday, May 17.

The Western Regional Health Authority said the delay in reopening the lab is due to a need to ensure that repairs to the ventilation systems, which necessitated the temporary closure, are completed at a standard that will allow for optimum service to clients and the comfort of staff.

This extended closure will affect all out-patients previously scheduled for tests. In the meantime, blood donations are being handled at the isolation building located in the car park at the Accident and Emergency Unit.
