No matter what the government provides, healthcare services to the people will not be beneficial if people face disturbances and hardships to enjoy such rights, said Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.
A ceremony to commission the new seven-storey medical ward into service took place at Yangon General Hospital of the Ministry of Health on Anawrahta Road of Latha Township in Yangon Region as a gesture of hailing the 77th Anniversary of Union Day, with an address by State Administration Council Chairman Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.
In his speech, the Senior General underlined that all persons concerned need to consider how to shape a better State for the people.
He recounted that General Hospital is the largest one not only in Yangon an economic hub but across the nation and is reliable for all people, playing a pivotal role in teaching medical education to students in successive eras.
In retrospect, he continued that YGH was established with 483 beds in 1873 and then gradually upgraded to a 2,000-bed hospital in 2016.
The Senior General noted that the newly-opened medical ward built with a large sum of funds has been facilitated with modern medical and hospital equipment and experienced professionals to provide hi-tech medical treatment to the patients’ people.
He urged all to develop a qualified healthcare service system with cheap patient costs and to ensure longevity for the people.
At the ceremony, the Senior General pressed the button to commission the seven-storey medical ward of YGH into service.
On occasion, the Senior General sprinkled scented water on the plaque of the building and heard reports on functions of x-ray and radiography, laboratories, haematological wards and other medical wards from the newly-opened seven-storey building presented by officials.
The Union Minister for Construction handed over the documents related to the building to the Union Minister for Health.
After the ceremonies, the Senior General joined a tea party with attendees to commemorate the opening of the seven-storey medical ward.
Also present at the ceremony were Joint Secretary Lt-Gen Ye Win Oo, Council members and Union ministers, the Yangon Region chief minister and senior military officers.
Since its establishment, the State Administration Council has built rural health centres and staff housings starting from February 2021 and established new medical wards at general hospitals in Magway, Monywa, Pyay, Hpa-an and Pathein and Sao San Tun Hospital, as well as public hospitals in regions and states. Moreover, annexes were built at Waibagi Specialty Hospital and Orthopaedic Hospital (Yangon), two-storey medical wards at 50-bed township hospitals, teaching buildings at Medical University and Nursing University, and opened branches for raising awareness of foods and drugs for the people. — MNA/TTA
