A 100-bed speciality hospital funded by the government of India will commence the development in Nasinu mid-next year.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Dr Atonio Lalabalavu confirmed this while responding to Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs, Lenora Qereqeretabua on the development of the hospital.

Dr Lalabalavu says the land is being identified in Nasinu and the team from India is expected to arrive soon.

He says the government of India will also provide equipment and human resources for the operation of the hospital.

The Minister says the offer by the government of India to build a 100-bed cardiac hospital in Fiji was also discussed in February 2023 during the visit to India by Deputy Prime Minister Professor Biman Prasad.
