CLINIC SERVICES WILL BE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED BEGINNING JAN. 17.

Due to the ongoing fifth wave of COVID-19 spread in Saint Lucia, Millennium Heights Medical Complex (MHMC) regrets to inform the public that outpatient clinic services will be temporarily suspended beginning January 17, 2022.

Patients scheduled for elective surgery are also advised that this service will be suspended. Patients with scheduled outpatient clinic and elective surgery appointments will be contacted by a Patient Coordinator to advise on new dates once services resume. Updates on this suspension will be shared on MHMC’s social media pages.

Patients and their families are reminded of the current protocols at MHMC detailed below:

Masking: All visitors must wear masks covering their nose and mouth, and under their chin at all times when indoors. Masks are also required outside in a small zone around our doorways. Visitors who don’t comply with these rules will be asked to leave the premises.

Visiting Hours:

Owen King EU Hospital (OKEUH)

Ward – AGW 1-3, Obstetrics & ICU 1 visitor per patient  Monday to Sunday | 6am – 7am | Maximum 15 mins per visit

Ward – Pediatrics 1 visitor per patient  Monday to Sunday | 6am – 7am | One parent will be allowed to stay with the patient, name should be registered with nurses. Only 1 visitor will be permitted during visiting hours. If the other parent is just visiting and not relieving the parent who is already on the unit, that visiting parent will need to come to the unit at the hospital allocated visiting hours, thus reducing traffic on the ward.

National Mental Wellness Centre (NMWC)

All wards 1 visitor per patient  Monday to Sunday | 4 pm – 5 pm | Maximum 15 mins per visit.

MHMC recognises that persons may wish to drop off items for family members outside of visiting hours. Please note these items can be dropped off at the security station, properly marked with the patient’s name and ward.

The management and staff of the MHMC continues to appeal to the public to comply with the new measures as we continue to put your health first. For more updates and announcements, follow MHMC on Facebook and LinkedIn on @millenniumheightsmedicalcomplex or please email [email protected]
