Labasa Hos­pi­tal Med­i­cal Su­peri­ten­dent Dr Jaoji Vulibeci recog­nised the vi­tal link of pub­lic part­ner­ship to meet the needs of pa­tients ad­mit­ted in hos­pi­tal.

He said this af­ter re­ceiv­ing a do­na­tion of med­i­cal equip­ment last week from Ham­mond Aged Care in Aus­tralia. “No do­na­tion is small and this is a per­fect ex­am­ple of pub­lic part­ner­ship, it is im­por­tant for our med­i­cal staff to take care of th­ese med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties,” Dr Jaoji said. “On be­half of the Govern­ment and the Min­istry of Health, I would like to thank Ham­mond for recog­nis­ing the needs of peo­ple who are ad­mit­ted in hospi­tals.”

This was the first time the or­gan­i­sa­tion has do­nated to the Labasa hos­pi­tal. Ham­mond Aged Care rep­re­sen­ta­tive Ravi­nesh Chand said they wanted to as­sist the min­istry with their work. “We trans­ported med­i­cal equip­ments from our or­gan­i­sa­tion in Aus­tralia,” Mr Chand said. “The med­i­cal equip­ment will be given to the Wainikoro Health cen­tre and health cen­tre in Labasa and Labasa hos­pi­tal as well.” Mr Chand said the or­gan­i­sa­tion hoped to con­tinue this kind of work in the fu­ture, with beds and clothes for af­fected ar­eas. Mean­while, Dr Jaoji said Labasa Hos­pi­tal had been try­ing their best to upgrade the level of fa­cil­i­ties.
