Minister questions cost of Couva hospital construction


    Construction of the Couva Medical Multi-Training Facility allegedly came in $800m over budget according to the Health Minister.

    Speaking today, Mr Terrence Deyalsingh claims between the Point Fortin and Arima hospitals, Government reduced the cost by a total of $500m for what was previously agreed to.

    However, he laments that the State was unable to save the almost $1bn extra spent on the Couva facility.
