The Northern Regional Hospital now has a fully functioning operating theater following investments made by the Government of Belize through the ministry of health. The opening ceremonies took place on Tuesday in Orange Walk and present for the event were Minister of Health, Hon. Pablo Marin, his minister of State, Hon. Angel Campos and Area Representative for Orange Walk North, Hon. Gaspar Vega.

The Theater had not been functional for the past two years and the government saw it as a priority to have it back in operation and invested approximately 400 thousand dollars in the facility. The theater saw some major work done to repair the walls, ceiling, floor as well as the structure being reinforced. With the investment, the Northern Regional Hospital now has two fully functioning theaters.

There will now be moves to staff the facility with surgeons and anesthesiologists to cover all areas of medicine.
