Madras Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (MIOT) Pacific Hospital is what many Fijians needed in terms of medical upgrade.

This comment was made by Dr Prithvi Mohandas, the managing director for MIOT International.

He said: “So the challenge MIOT has is to provide the most advanced care at an affordable price.

“This is exactly what Fiji needs and this will be MIOT’s focus when they start operating here.”

The official launch of the hospital is tomorrow and it will be opened by the Attorney-General and Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Dr Mohandas said a lot of people had previously come to Fiji and said a lot of things and not much tangible benefit had resulted.

Dr Mohandas, a surgeon from India added this would not be the same for MIOT as they were adamant at providing the best services to Fijians.

“You will see a perceptible move towards a very positive beneficial system that will enable Fijians to have access to treatment that is required urgently,” he added.

“This means modern treatment at the right price.”

Dr Mohandas said they had partnered with owners BSP Life, to establish MIOT Pacific and address problems faced by people here.

“The two major problems are to provide the services medically and to provide postgraduate education to Fijians,” Mr Mohandas said.

Medical students in Fiji will get a chance to train with world class medical personnel under the postgraduate education scheme.

“This initiative will eventually allow Fijian Specialists to train and later provide treatment for their fellow Fijians in Fiji.”

The hospital will also invest in different diagnostic equipment which will be brought from India soon.

Speaking about future development, he said MIOT Pacific Hospital would be a hub for the Pacific.

He also added they were planning on refurbishing the hospital rooms to cater for more beds.

“Currently we have 40 beds, in 18 months we will have 250 and in three years it will be 350 beds.”

Located at Amy Street in Toorak, the hospital is also having a clinic week free of charge this week.
