The first phase of construction of the CWM Maternity Unit extension has been completed and Health Minister Doctor Ifereimi Waqainabete confirms the second phase will begin in the next financial year.

He says we had COVID-19 for two years and during that time they had to concentrate their resources on the high volume of work they were taking.

Doctor Waqainabete says Phase 1 included the ground work and taking down some of the existing infrastructure and preparatory work.

The ground breaking ceremony for the CWM Maternity Unit extension was officiated by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in 2018.

It was announced at the time that the extension upon completion will offer post, ante and neonatal facilities, a first stage delivery room, a post anaesthetics delivery unit, eight new delivery rooms, three new operating theaters, a palliative Care Ward; a High Dependency Unit, conference rooms, ultrasound and x-ray capabilities and a family planning office.
