As part of its immediate plans, Oceania Hospitals PTE Limited aims to expand its presence in other parts of the country.

This is through offering quality medical care by setting up satellite centres in the Northern Division, Western Division, and in the Suva to Nausori corridors.

The Hospital is also planning to upgrade its facilities to meet the needs of specialised areas and strengthen its diagnostic capabilities through the introduction of Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) services.

This is an investment of up $10 million to $15 million.

 

This was revealed by Oceania Hospitals chairman Malakai Naiyaga yesterday during the celebration of the hospital’s 20 years of private health care in Fiji.

The celebration also marked the second anniversary of the ‘Oceania Hospitals’ brand, evolving from the ‘Suva Private Hospitals’.

“We not only celebrate our growth and achievements but also stay true to our commitment to continuously add value to the health sector in Fiji,” Mr Naiyaga said.

“Being the first and the largest private hospital in Fiji, we are committed to providing leadership in the private health sector.”

 

“We strive for the high standard of clinical expertise and nursing care building on the strong foundations of the last 20 years of learning, collaborations, and experience.”

Mr Naiyaga said as they progressed, their aim was to expand themselves in specialties offered by the hospitals and evolved significant capital expenditure and redevelopment of the certain parts of the hospital.

“With our excellent technologies and facilities, we provide a wide variety of high standard services where we can and with the high standard of diagnostic capabilities,” he said.
Challenges during COVID 19

 

Mr Naiyaga said during COVID-19 pandemic, they followed all the guidelines and worked with the Ministry of Health and Medical Services in terms of ensuring they are complying with the COVID-19 restrictions.

“There were risks that we faced in terms of people producing and presenting with COVID-19 as well but, we managed that quite well.”

“We are happy that it didn’t get out of control here and it was well managed,” Mr Naiyaga said.

“Our COVID -19 protocols are very stringent and that’s why we are still receiving the patients, but we are quite happy that anything could have happened but the hospital operations continued as normal.”
