Obstetrician/gynaecologist (OB/GYN) consultant made it his personal mission to ensure that all female health issues, especially those that have been neglected in the public sector, are accessible to all.

Stemming from his dissatisfaction with the manner in which these issues were dealt with in both the public and private health sectors, and on the advice of his friend, Former chairman of the North West Regional Health Authority Dr Andy Bhagwandass, Dr Persad decided that it was time to take matters into his own hands and do his own thing.

Thus, the Sanjivani Women’s Hospital was born.

Construction on the women’s hospital, located at Wilson Street, St Augustine, began in April, 2017 and was completed at a cost of around $50 million.

The health facility was opened just over three weeks ago, four months ahead of the original scheduled opening date.

The facility even offers plastic surgery and treats with fertility issues.

The modern look of the hospital sets it apart from the rest, especially as it looks nothing like a regular medical facility but rather a health spa.

Sanjivani has two operating theatres equipped with the latest technology.

Family members who wish to witness the birth of their loved one’s baby will be accommodated in viewing rooms, while there are recuperating rooms for mothers.

Fathers have not been forgotten as the facility has fold-out chairs for those who wish to spend the night.

The facility also boasts a state-of-the-art paediatric suite furnished with incubators and travel ventilators.

Barbados Fertility Centre (Trinidad IVF Clinic) is also located at the Women’s Hospital, providing seamless patient care.

The Clinic offers a full range of services such as Ovulation Induction, Inter-uterine Insemination (IUI), Semen Analysis, Bloods, Ultrasound, Saline Infused Sonograms (SIS), Hysterosalpingogram (HSG), Hysteroscopy and general fertility advice and management as well as all IVF monitoring needs.

The St Augustine location is convenient for patients coming from any part of the country and the Clinic's office allows for patient privacy.

Dr Persad assured that the best quality care would be available at the facility.
