      Business executives or anyone interested in air or seaport information can log on directly to http//www.viport.com and find what they need. The VIPA site is complete with useful information and is very user-friendly.
      Here is what's available on the site: aviation and marine services, aviation and port fees, data, leasing information, press releases, project renovation updates, contact numbers, related links, employment & business opportunities, port news, statistics, special events, and much more.
      There is no clutter or excessive flashy gimmicks here. The designers of this Web site seem to have used the principle: "simple is better!" This Web site should be considered as a model for other public sector agencies. The following was taken from the "about us" section of the web site:
     
      About Us...
      The Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA) was created by the Legislature of the Virgin Islands on Dec. 24, 1968 through Act 2375. The Authority was established to own, develop, operate and manage all of the air and marine ports in the United States Virgin Islands. It was also charged with controlling the harbors in the territory, but not the mooring and anchoring of vessels. The law stipulates that VIPA must make its properties available to the public so that the populace may reap the benefits of these facilities.
      The Aviation Division
      The Port Authority owns and operates two airports, the Cyril E. King Airport (CEKA) on St. Thomas and the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (HERA) on St. Croix. VIPA is currently undergoing a major renovation and construction project at HERA to expand its terminal and runway to accommodate more passengers and airlines. This project is part of an initiative by VIPA to help boost the economy of St. Croix. (The international airport identifiers are: STT for the St. Thomas airport and STX for the St. Croix airport.)
      The Marine Division
      The Port Authority owns and operates marine cargo and passenger facilities on St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix. On St. Thomas, the facilities include: the Charlotte Amalie Waterfront; the Edward Wilmoth Blyden IV Marine Terminal; the Crown Bay Cargo Port; the Crown Bay Cruise Ship Terminal; and the Red Hook Marine Facility, which includes a cargo and passenger facility. On St. John, there are two facilities, the Loredon Lorence Boynes, Sr. Dock and the St. John Cargo Dock which is referred to as "The Creek." On St. Croix, the facilities include: the Gallows Bay Dock; the Ann E. Abramson Marine Facility; the Wilfred "Bomba" Allick Port and Transshipment Center, also known as "The Containerport;" and the Molasses Pier.

THE GOV. JUAN LUIS HOSPITAL AND MEDICAL CENTERThe Gov. JFL HOSPITAL & MEDICAL CENTER
   Health care in the Virgin Islands is comparable to most suburban or semi-rural areas of the United States. There is a fairly large pool of private health and medical practitioners. On each of the two major islands, there are modern semi-autonomous hospitals and medical centers that provide the bulk of health services in the territory.
