A new emergency and outpatient building was opened on yesterday at the Ywar Thar Gyi Mental Health Hospital in Dagon Myothit (East) Township, under the supervision of the Yangon Region Government. A medical devices donation event was also held the same day.
Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein and officials formally opened the event by cutting the ceremonial ribbon.
The Chief Minister said it was auspicious to donate a new building for people with mental health issues in Yangon. “We will support the hospital to provide good services to the public. Moreover, we are trying to fulfill the need for staff nurses. Also, I am grateful to those well-wishers who donated medical devices,” he said.
Then, the head of the Mental Health Hospital delivered remarks.
An outbreak of fire at the hospital on 24 December, 2018 had damaged the two-storey building. The hospital’s inpatients were shifted to safety.
To reconstruct the building, the Myanmar Engineering Society had inspected the building under the guidance of the regional government. The Ministry of Construction’s Building Department built the hospital with disaster management funds of K173.88 million allocated by the Yangon Region Government. —San Kyaw Oo (IPRD) (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
