VICE PRESIDENT Dr Sai Mauk Kham inspected the progress of the renovation of Yangon General Hospital and follow-up works yesterday.
On his inspection tour, the vice president visited the PET/CT Cyclotron Center, wards in the main building and the operating theater complex, where he greeted patients and their families and medical staff of the hospital.
Next, the vice president heard reports on the work progress presented by Yangon Region Chief Minister U Myint Swe, Regional Minister for Social Affairs Dr Myint Thein and other officials.
In his address, the vice president stressed the need to ensure quality improvements to healthcare, including medical equipment, manpower and services. He also called for further ways and means to adequately accommodate patients as the newly-extended five-storey building has grown crowded.
He also praised relevant committees, officials, medical staff and advisers for their efforts in improving the hospital.
Yangon General Hospital’s major renovation works, including the extended construction of five-storey building and others, began in the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
The renovation of the main building was carried out in the 2014-2015 fiscal, reaching 60 per cent completion at the end of that fiscal year.
The remaining works continued throughout the 2015-2016 fiscal year, and the renovations are slated to be completed by 10 March after the installation of glass roofs in the main building.
So far, the construction of a five-storey building for cancer patients is 45 per cent complete and is expected to be 60 per cent complete by the end of this fiscal year.
Moreover, the construction of a 10-storey staff building is 20 per cent complete and is slated to be 50 per cent complete by the end of this fiscal year.—Myanmar News Agency
