St Kitts and Nevis: PM Drew meets baby Romarion who benefitted from Children's Health Programme

Prime Minister Dr Terrance Drew felt blessed again to have a visit from the parents of another baby who benefitted from the Children Health Programme of St Kitts and Nevis. The parents came down to the office of the prime minister following their child's successful surgery to express their gratitude on Saturday, April 8, 2023.

The baby travelled to Health City, Grand Cayman, for heart surgery a few weeks back with another baby who also was in sudden need of treatment. Both the babies are in good condition now.

The update was shared by PM Terrance Drew on its official Facebook account, in which he said, "Today I was blessed once again with a visit from the parents of another baby who benefited from the Children Health Programme. Baby Romarion Smithen also travelled to Health City, Grand Cayman, for heart surgery."

He further expressed his gratitude and thankfulness to the parents of Romarion Phelencia Jones and Romario Smithen for stopping by to share the wonderful news of the successful surgery. "Best wishes to the family," added Dr Drew.

The parents of the second baby, who travelled along with Romarion to the health city, also came last week to visit the prime minister. The child received critical heart surgery through the Children’s Health Programme established under the St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party administration at the Health City Cayman Islands, a medically advanced tertiary hospital in Grand Cayman.

His mother said his surgery was successful, and the baby was healthy and happy. "I am grateful to his mother, who stopped by for a short visit to update me on the success. I wish them both the best, and I am pleased her baby could receive the necessary medical care," added the PM. As the prime minister and minister of health of St Kitts and Nevis, Dr Drew is always at the forefront of taking care of his nation's children, especially those whose parents couldn't afford expensive healthcare.
