Fire strikes St Joseph Mercy

Kaieteur News: "An early morning fire yesterday destroyed the oldest wing of St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Kingston, Georgetown, erasing about 80 years of history.
While the destruction of the original hospital building is significant all patients were safely evacuated as well as all medical staffers.
As at yesterday the hospital governing board, doctors, administration, staff and Sisters of Mercy were taken up with addressing the most immediate needs of patients, their families and employees."
