Medical director at the Dominica China Friendship Hospital Dr. Ruby Blanc says 2021 has been a very challenging year for the hospital and the authority.
She says this is due to the covid-19 pandemic and the fact that a new hospital was being built while health care services were also being offered to the public.
Blanc says for most part, the DCFH has been able to provide excellent care to the public amid those challenges.
Dr. Blanc says over 800 surgeries were performed during the year 2021.
She also gave an account of how the Accident and Emergency department was able to function during the year particularly in November.
