Expecting mothers will soon have access to a new health unit that meets international standards and one that delivers a complete package of coordinated care designed specifically for women.
This follows the ground breaking ceremony of the new Suva Women’s Health unit by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama this morning.
“We’re purchasing more modern medical equipment, here at CWM and across the country, and we’ve opened and upgraded new health facilities at Makoi, Beqa, Tailevu, Tavua, Sigatoka, and Cuvu to name a few, and soon as well as in Rotuma, Nakasi, Navosa, Naduri, Ba and Lautoka. And we are investing in community-based approaches that raise awareness on health issues, and give Fijians the tools they need to make healthy decisions and take greater responsibility for their own health.”
The new Suva Women’s Unit upon completion will offer post, ante and neonatal facilities; a first stage delivery room; a post anaesthetics delivery unit; eight new delivery rooms; three new operating theatres; a palliative Care Ward; a High Dependency Unit; conference rooms; ultrasound and x-ray capabilities, a family planning office, all built to the same standard as hospitals in more developed countries.
