His Excellency President Dr Irfaan Ali said that Guyana is building a healthcare system second to none, which would play an important role in enhancing the well-being of Guyanese and those around the region.

During the commissioning of the new state-of-the-art pathology lab at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), the Head of State said that the Government has to build a healthcare system that is capable of servicing “at least 2.5m people in the medium term” including Guyanese and medical tourists.

“We want to ensure that our healthcare system is part of health tourism and is part of creating an economy by itself.”

The new pathology lab will guarantee faster diagnoses with greater accuracy and create improved patient care through telepathology.
