Pointe Mitchel, Dominica (June 19, 2018) – The grand opening of the Pointe Mitchel private doctor’s office took place on June 14, 2018 at 4:30 pm and represents fulfillment of the hopes and dreams of area residents since Hurricane Maria. This Rebuild Dominica Inc project is available to any local or visiting health professional wanting to practice their calling closer to the grassroots level.

The private doctor’s office works hand-in-hand with the local health center; performing services like draining of abscesses or stitching of large cuts. Such services often require a trip to the Roseau Health Center or Accident & Emergency. Additionally, home visits and after-hour basic medications will be available to area villages.

Rebuild Dominica Inc’s Director of Medical Operations, Dr. Sam Christian, shared that the office will be staffed full-time on Tuesdays and Thursdays and by appointment on weekends and weekdays between 5 and 7 pm.

Already, patients from the Roseau area who really need to be seen same day, are making the short trip to Pointe Mitchel. Especially when waiting times extend into hours elsewhere. A presentation was made during the opening which featured Pointe Mitchel native, Dr. Dale Dangleben, Dominica’s top trauma surgeon practicing in the United States.

A blessing of the office and formal handing over of keys took place at Joan Frampton’s Residence on the flat across from Bolo’s Bar.
