The Government of Saint Lucia, acting through the Ministry of Health and Wellness, is preparing for the opening of the new Owen King EU Hospital.
In this regard, Government is giving consideration to partnering with private sector service providersthrough the outsourcing of some of the services required at the EU Hospital and associated medical facilities. The objective of this approach is to ensure that the required services are delivered to the health care system with maximum efficiency and at affordable cost.
Partnerships with private sector service providers are being contemplated for the following services:
Expressions of Interest (EOI) are invited from companies/service providers that have the experience and capability to provide the afore-mentioned services. Specifically, each EOI should include the following:
EOI in written form should be hand delivered to the Office of The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health and Wellness, no later than Wednesday, 19th April 2017 before 4.00 p.m. A receipt should be requested and obtained for each EOI delivered. EOI submitted after the stated date and time will not be accepted.
Companies/Service Providers will be pre-qualified based on a review of the EOI submitted. Pre-qualified Companies/Service Providers will be (a) provided with Terms of Reference that detail the scope of the services required (b) invited to undertake site visits and engage in consultations, and (c) requested to submit a detailed and costed proposal as part of a process that is expected to culminate in the selection of a preferred provider for each service.
