Mandalay General Hospital to open nine-storey building


A nine-storey medical ward built in the compound of Mandalay General Hospital will be opened in the last week of February.
Under the arrangements of Mandalay Region Government, wellwishers donated over K3 billion for construction of a 192 feet long, 64 feet wide and 88 feet high medical ward. Construction stared on 14 February January 2013 and it was completed in January 2015. As a result, Mandalay General Hospital will give more health care services to the people from Upper Myanmar, medical superintendent Dr U Win told media.
“We admit patients as of first week of February as the construction tasks were completed. The opening ceremony will be held in the near future. Wellwishers across the nation donated cash to the fund for construction of 12 medical departments of 38 from the hospital. So, the new medical ward was named “Mann Taung Yeik”,” he said.
The new building comprises patient awards, intensive care units, medical departments and practical hall of medical students.
Mandalay General Hospital is a 1000-bed hospital. As the nine-storey building has been completed, the authorities of the hospital submitted a proposal to the government to be able to upgrade the hospital to a 1500-bed general hospital. —Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)
