New Registration Area under construction at PMH

Construction of the new Patient Registration Area at the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) commenced this week as part of the Ministry of Health and Public Hospitals Authority’s Urgent & Emergency Care Project. The project which includes a major overhaul of spaces within the Accident & Emergency Department at PMH, seeks to reduce the wait times in A&E by redirecting non-emergency clients to designated Urgent Care Centers.

The updated design for the new Patient Registration Area in the space formerly occupied by the Yellowbirds Canteen in the Ambulatory Block, calls for the construction of six (6) individual registration cubicles designed to enhance patient privacy. Also included in the works are client friendly cashiers’ windows improving patient privacy and security, and a small common waiting area. Other renovations to the area comprise high end security systems along with sound absorption flooring and energy conserving LED lighting.

The construction of the new Registration Area is expected to be completed in approximately seven (7) weeks. Telco Enterprises Limited has been contracted to do the work.
