If you have been up to the former Suva Private Hospital recently, you would have noticed that it has rebranded to Oceania Hospitals.

The joint venture which used to operate the former Suva Private Hospital as MIOT Pacific broke up which resulted in the rebranding.

However, in a nutshell this is a split move by the owners Oceania Hospitals Pte Limited (OHPL) a joint venture between MIOT Investments (Fiji) Pte Limited (30 percent) and BSP Life Fiji Ltd (70 percent).

Oceania Hospitals Pte Limited involved a Management Agreement with MIOT Management (Fiji) Pte Limited, an entity with the same owners as MIOT Investments (Fiji) Pte Limited, to manage the hospital with provision clinical and administrative services.

Madras Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology International Hospital India (MIOT India) Managing Director Dr Prithvi Mohandas in an interview from India yesterday said: “MIOT International has absolutely nothing to do with any employee in Oceania or in Oceania as an entity.”

Dr Mohandas in an earlier interview said the vision of MIOT India is to create self sustaining quality through institutions of learning.

“This vision does not match the goals of our partner.”

In an earlier interview Oceania Hospitals executive director Pramesh Sharma said MIOT International’s relationship with Oceania Hospitals was through MIOT Investments Limited and MIOT Management Limited.

“Oceania Hospitals Pte Limited does not have any direct relationship with MIOT International apart from MIOT International guaranteeing the performance of MML.”

He had earlier stated that they would begin to remove reference of MIOT Pacific Hospitals, which is owned and registered by OHPL, to avoid any confusion.

He said Oceania Hospitals Pte Limited would be re-branded to Oceania Hospitals Pte Limited trading as Oceania Hospitals. Mr Sharma also said the recruitment of personnel is an ongoing process and as there is a scarcity of skills in Fiji in certain clinical areas, OHPL has recruited from India in the general medicine, Cath Lab and CT Scan services.
