Over 10,000 Fijians in the provinces of Nadroga, Navosa and the highlands of Ba will benefit from the new Navosa Sub-Divisional Hospital in Keiyasi which will be opened by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today.

The people residing in this sub-division travel to Sigatoka, Nadi, or even as far as Ba to seek specialized treatment, x-rays and ultrasounds, maternity services, pharmacy services and laboratory testing. While speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony in 2018, Bainimarama highlighted that upon the completion of the hospital all of these services will be offered in Keiyasi.

Health Minister, Doctor Ifereimi Waqainabete had earlier said that the Fiji Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Services are preparing to head to Navosa Hospital to ensure the medicines are stocked up and biomedical machines are ready for full operation.
