FREEPORT, Grand Bahama – An official contract for establishment of a new Freeport Community Clinic was signed March 30, 2016 in the boardroom of the public Rand Memorial Hospital.  Minister for Grand Bahama, the Hon. Dr. Michael Darville addressed the signing between the Public Hospitals Authority and The Beck Group, stating: “This signing represents another step in the advancement of healthcare for the residents of Grand Bahama; and by extension, the Northern Bahamas.”
