Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham inspected ongoing extensions and renovations to the Yangon General Hospital yesterday, describing it as the country’s most reliable medical centre.
At surgical wards, the vice president offered words of encouragement to two patients whose accidentally damaged arm and finger have respectively been surgically attached.
Yangon Region Chief Minister U Myint Swe and other officials briefed the vice president on the progress of the extensions and renovations to the century-old hospital.

the relevant committees for their achievements in the
construction work, stressing plans to make the hospital a protected Yangon heritage site when the renovations are completed.
He attributed the accessibility of hi-tech equipment and effective medicines to collective contributions from the public, encouraging officials to keep up their good work in order to allow the next government to continue with the project.
The Yangon General Hospital has been upgraded from a 1,500-bed to a 2,000-bed facility equipped with sophisticated equipment such as 16-Slice CT, Digital X-ray, ECG, Ultrasound, PET/CT, Cyclotron, 128-Slice CT and MRI-1.5.—Myanmar News Agency
