OPENING OF THE CARDIAC AND ACCIDENT EMERGENCY CARE UNIT
The opening of the new “Cardiac and Accident Emergency Care Unit” marks an important milestone for the development of modern health care in Fiji.
This was highlighted by the Minister for Health and Medical Services Hon. Rosy Akbar while officiating at this event held at Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva this evening.
Attorney General and Minister for Economy Hon. Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and Minister Akbar toured the state of the art facility.
Minister Akbar said MIOT has made significant investments and brought about remarkable changes at what is now undoubtedly our country’s leading private healthcare facility and probably for the Pacific as well.
“This is not only a clear demonstration of MIOT’s commitment to help the people of Fiji have access to state-of-the-art hospital care but also shows that leading international businesses have confidence in Fiji as offering a safe and secure environment for their investments,” Minister Akbar said.
“These investments are, of course, supported by a number of incentives, including tax concessions that the Fiji Government offers to encourage international participation in our growing economy.”
The Innovative Cardiac Catheterisation Lab (or ‘Cath Lab’) enables specialists to identify and remove blockages in blood vessels, including those in the heart, without the need for surgery and with very limited exposure to X-ray radiation.
