The construction of the new Ba Hospital is progressing as the finishing work is well underway.

Hospital site project manager Sanjit Sharma said the new infrastructure which is designed with a budget of $30 million, was progressing well.

“Overall the project is going quite well, with the installation of lights, structural designs and internal services and the contractor has started with the internal painting, finally finished with the entry foyer, roofing work is in progress as well,” Mr Sharma said.

“The new hospital has a modernised design and once operational it is going to cater for over 56,000 residents in the province of Ba.  It’s a 70-bed hospital with advanced and enhanced health care services which includes two operating theaters, dental facilities, x-ray, antenatal, provision for eye clinic, birthing facility and pharmaceutical services.

“It will also have modernised accommodation with single unit and duplex unit for families. The hospital will be fully accessible to persons living with disabilities. Compared to the old Ba Hospital, the new Ba Hospital is of a very modern design.”

The new Ba Hospital would provide enhanced health services to the people of Ba province and is one of the major capital projects by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

Mr Sharma said the team was trying its best to complete the project.

Contractually, the project is expected to be completed by April 30.
