St Kitts and Nevis to Receive Its Own Cancer Treatment Centre


Dr. Arthur Porter disclosed to the Communications Unit in the Office of the Prime Minister (CUOPM) that he is developing two cancer facilities in St. Kitts and Antigua in an effort to aid citizens.

“In St. Kitts, we intend to establish a small cancer centre that will be a referral centre to what will be the Cancer Centre for the Eastern Caribbean which will be located at Mount St. John Hospital in Antigua,” Dr. Porter cited.

Dr. Porter, who is a licensed physician, has been seeing patients diagnosed with this disease already. He explained that he has been working with the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis “…so we can see government patients as well as private patients at the small facility on St. Kitts when constructed.”

A location has not yet been decided upon for the centre in St Kitts-Nevis, but come November construction of the centre in Antigua-Barbuda would commence.

Dr Porter is anticipating that cancer patients would be flying from different countries to be treated at the cancer facilities when opened.

“We will see cancer patients from the region and then the high technology radiation oncology, the radiotherapy and some of the high intensity chemotherapy will be done in Antigua and the patients will come back here to be cared for locally as opposed to having to travel to the United States or the United Kingdom,” said Dr. Porter

The Bahamas and Trinidad and Tobago saw similar cancer facilities constructed.
