Now back to the New APH. Here’s an interesting development.
The opening of the new APH didn’t make (why am I not surprised) it to April 2013 as promised by Gov. Takit during my interview with him in March. Instead there’s this Soft Opening” on May 8, 2013 according to this invitation.
When I visited last March, I said that in my personal opinion, the hospital is far from being completed. It may have all the necessary furnitures but will never pass the required standard for a healthcare facility in a short period of time. Think fo healthcare safety and regulations.
So a soft opening would probably the best way to get around this requirement? A soft opening refers to the practice of a business usually to test its operations, working out any kinks before a grand opening, but one may think what’s the point of a soft opening just 5 crucial days before elections? I hope this is not the case.
