New private medical facility opens in Antigua and Barbuda

OPM: On Monday, Prime Minister Gaston Browne was invited to tour Antigua and Barbuda;s newest private medical facility, the Rovier Surgical Suites.

The surgical center is owned and operated by obstetrician and gynecology physician Dr. Gwendolyn Fevrier-Roberts, Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist Dr. George Roberts, and daughter Dr. Nicole Roberts.

The facility, which houses four (4) beds and a fully operational surgical theatre in the Ramco Building, will primarily focus on ambulatory surgery or “day surgery”.Day surgery is a system in which a patient comes into the suite for a surgical procedure, has the operation, recovers, and is released from the facility in a single day. Dr. Fevrier-Roberts indicated that the new medical facility will also have the capacity for overnight stays.

During the tour, Prime Minister Browne congratulated the family-owned medical practice and assured the doctors of his government’s commitment to supporting medical development.

PM Browne said, “having a close family, and at the same time being able to make a very important economic contribution to the country is significant. Your contribution is not limited to medicine it’s even the business of medicine, which is great and, we commend you. I want to wish you our continued support. Any assistance you may need, once it is within our means, you can rest assured that it will be forthcoming.
