#Gleaner #EditorsForum #CornwallRegionalHospital DECEMBER 12, 2020: Had there been a tidy transfer between the old and new board installed at the Cornwall Regional Hospital (CRH) after the change of government in 2016, indications are that Jamaica could have avoided spending some of the more than $1.2 billion spent on restoration works over the past four years. According to Calvin G. Brown, who was board chairman at CRH when the People’s National Party (PNP) was voted out of office in 2016, he tried to initiate contact with the new board with a view of properly briefing them on the various issues, including the status of the air-conditioning system, but he was not accorded the courtesy.
