We had much is­sues post Cy­clone Win­ston and then with the build­ing ma­te­ri­als. But we man­aged to cope with the chal­lenge. Ka­mal Kapoor Ministry of Health and Med­i­cal Ser­vices project of­fi­cer

The new Ba Hos­pi­tal is ex­pected to be completed by March next year. The Ministry of Health and Med­i­cal Ser­vices project of­fi­cer, Ka­mal Kapoor, said the $27.7 mil­lion project was in its fin­ish­ing stages with much of the work achieved within the time­frame. “We had much is­sues post Cy­clone Win­ston and then with the build­ing ma­te­ri­als. But we man­aged to cope with the chal­lenge,” Mr Kapoor said. He said the hos­pi­tal would have the ca­pac­ity of 70 beds, two op­er­at­ing the­atres, X-ray fa­cil­i­ties and a den­tal surgery.

“It will be a fully-fledged hos­pi­tal,” Mr Kapoor said. The Act­ing Prime Min­is­ter and At­tor­ney-Gen­eral, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and the Min­is­ter of Health and Med­i­cal Ser­vices, Rosy Ak­bar toured the hos­pi­tal on Thurs­day.
