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.
