The Prime Minister, in officially opening the new Punjas Medical Centre in Lautoka yesterday, made a very special mention of its unique design and features.

PM Voreqe Bainimarama said this made it uniquely different from the other health facilities launched at Vatukarasa, Cuvu and the new extension at the Sigatoka Hospital.

“About 29,000 people will benefit directly from this health centre, providing them with general health care, maternal and child health care, and specialist attention for mental health patients,” Mr Bainimarama said during the opening.

“Especially in this most important part of the country, this contributes so much to our national economy and the prosperity of every Fijian.

“It is a wonderful act of generosity on the part of this family and the Punja and Sons Group of Companies.

“I want to say a heartfelt vinaka vakalevu to them on behalf of the Fijian Government and the people.”

He said people of Lautoka now had a choice whether to come to the centre or visit Lautoka Hospital.

“And we all know Lautoka Hospital is under pressure because of the demand on its services.”

He said this facility would do a great deal to relieve some of that pressure, so it was a valuable addition to the health infrastructure of the Sugar City and its citizens.

The Punjas Medical Centre has been especially designed with the needs of people with disabilities, with easy access to its consultation rooms, changing rooms, shower and toilet facilities.
