Construction of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Neonatal Ward at the Magway General Hospital has been completed, and it will be handed over the Department of Medical Services on 27 November. The new ward is built under Myanmar-Japan friendship programme.
A survey conducted in 2014 showed that the mortality rate of mother and children under 1- year-old at the Magway hospital was high.
Therefore, Magway Region Government and senior officials from the Ministry of Health and Sports, in cooperation with JICA, began the construction of the three-storey building in 2018.
The hospital’s medical superintendent Dr Win Win Htay said that it was a high standard building donated by JICA and was constructed with Japanese technologies, urging the patients and the public to abide by the hospital’s disciplines when they come to the hospital.
After constructing a five-storey building and being provided with staff and medicines, the former 200-bed hospital was upgraded into a 500-bed one on 26 October. At present, the hospital is treating COVID-19 patients.— Than Naing Oo (Magway District IPRD) (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
