St Helene Artemis Hospital in Curepipe

The development of a 135-bed oncology hospital in Coromandel is expected to start in the coming months, Gateway Real Estate Africa(GREA), the lead investor, has announced.

It is also funding the new 81-bed, multi-specialty St Helene Artemis Hospital in Curepipe. The development of the hospital in Curepipe broke ground in June.

Both projects, GREA announced, will require a total investment value of about Rs2.2 billion ($54-million), South Africa’s Engineering News reported.

St Helene Artemis Hospital in Curepipe, it said, plans to provide numerous healthcare services once completed.

“We are very excited to be the conduit for healthcare investment and development in Mauritius, especially at a time when healthcare systems across the world are buckling under pressure from COVID-19, Gateway CEO and cofounder Greg Pearson was quoted as saying.

In May, l’Express had reported that Groupe Filatex, a Malagasy family enterprise engaged in energy, had acquired 10% in PolyClinique de l’Ouest Ltee, the company that would own the two hospitals.

St Helene Artemis will be operated by Falcon Healthcare Group, which has entered into an operations and management agreement with Artemis Medicare Services.

Dr Zouberr Joomaye, adviser to Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth is said to behind the oncology hospital. Dr Joomaye is also the spokesperson of the National Communication Committee on COVID-19.

The projects have been subject to Parliamentary scrutiny over allegations that they were granted fast-track clearances.
