A Brief History
“The Surgi-Med Clinic Co. Ltd.,” previously known as “San Fernando Medical Centre,” was established in May 1997 after changing ownership and management.
In September 1997, Surgi-Med was opened to the public after extensive renovations to update the building were completed. This included the installation of a new Reception Area, an additional Operating Theatre, three (3) Private Rooms with eight (8) beds, an X-ray department, and a Medical Laboratory.
Surgi-Med kept expanding with the addition of a Laminar Flow Operating Theatre, more Private Rooms, Delivery and Nursery Rooms, a Minor Theatre, an Intensive Care Unit, more doctors' offices, another Reception Area, a Physiotherapy Department, and facilities for Ultrasounds, CT scanning, Stress Testing, and Echo Testing.
In 2007, Surgi-Med celebrated its ten year anniversary by acknowledging and awarding the dedication of staff and officially launching the 64 Slice CT Scan Machine, now a part of our Radiology department. The Surgi-Med Clinic was also honoured with an award from the South Chamber of Commerce for Entrepreneurship.
In 2010, Surgi-Med Clinic continued expanding as it opened its new Cardiac Theatre, Advanced Intensive Care Unit (I.C.U.), even more Private Rooms, another reception area to accommodate more doctor’s offices, and additional car parks for customers.
