Fijians living in the province of Nadroga, Navosa and the highlands of Ba will no longer have to travel far to get access to quality medical treatment.
This is after Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama opened the Navosa sub-divisional hospital in Keyasi village today.
“This new hospital will serve 26 villages, 58 settlements, 11 kindergartens, 13 primary and two secondary schools.”
“People from Bukuya medical area and the upper Naqalimare nursing district can also choose to come here for care.
“PM Bainimarama highlighted that the hospital will not only make a huge difference for Fijians in the area but it will also save lives.
“This new hospital was once a primary care facility. Its medical services were good but quite limited.”
“By expanding this hospital into a sub-divisional hospital, we can perform surgeries in a modern operating theatre, with proper post-operative care and inpatient services.
“The Prime Minister stated that patients who need constant medical attention will have a bed in a sanitary and well-crafted hospital with doctors and nurses on site.
The $30m facility also includes a guest house for families who would be able to stay with their loved ones without having to bear the expenses of a hotel or transportation to and from their villages
