The Ministry of Health and Medical Services wishes to advise that the following are the services provided by the Fiji Emergency Medical Assistance Team (FEMAT) field hospital, currently operational from Old Government Supplies building in Natokowaqa and Nadovu Park in Lautoka.

  • The Fiji Emergency Medical Assistance Team (FEMAT) field hospital in Lautoka is for emergency care.
  • However, any patient who comes to the field hospital will be seen, except anyone showing COVID-19 like symptoms.
  • The field hospital treats cases that hospitals would normally expect to treat such as – acute cases, accidents, childbirth, and other non-elective surgeries.
  • This is being done to avoid putting non-infected patients in the same hospitals with infected patients. Lautoka hospital has been designated for COVID-19 patients.
  • Maternity care will also be done in the FEMAT Hospital while deliveries will be done onboard the MV Veivueti and Viseisei Health Centre.
  • Further care of sick mothers and babies will be done in the new Ba Hospital.

For emergency health matters, contact 2786945 / 2231960 / 2231956 to reach the FEMAT team in Lautoka.

The Ministry of Health requests anyone who may be showing symptoms of COVID-19 to present at a nearest screening clinic or call 158 for the medical team to reach you safely.
