Hi hear they will be bring down the tents. You can still use the hospital but I have heard that for serious things you need to go to Puerto Rico or stateside

They are also talking a out whether it needs to be rebuilt or not.

So really, nothing concrete

Mobile unit info below. It will be coming from New Jersey.

Virgin Islands is sharing in $89 billion in disaster recovery funding approved by Congress and signed into law by Trump on February 9. Rebuilding both VI hospitals is included as part of this funding.

The hospitals are not going away - discussion is whether to repair or replace and what that will look like.

Map has been wanting to replace the entire JFL hospital building for some time now. We'll see if he gets his wish or if they repair/rebuild the existing building.

WOW---Welcome back in advance. Still have the dive light! Hope all is well with you.

Some different doctors, and I use a different pharmacy. Medicare covers on islands as it used to. Some issues as post-storm but things should improve as facilities get more available.

Thanks to everyone! We're looking at a few weeks in July and August to see how things are progressing.

Gator's Mom: That is an interesting article. It is undated, but says the modules have been shipped and will be there in 2 weeks. The CEO at SRMC turned down tents and requested the modules also. I haven't seen any date certain for delivery here. Just one of those things you have to wait and see. We have the same issues. Where would you put a brand new hospital? Do you tear it to the ground or do you work around? Since we have both been living with partial hospitals, I guess there is no impetus to hurry.

The date on the news release from NJ was March 9, 2018. It's on the webpage link but very hard to decipher for sure. The modules are supposed to be installed and functioning at JFL by the end of April.

I've not seen any schedule for modular units on STT yet.
