Health centre receives timely donation

A new cardiac monitor/defibrillator has been donated to the Korolevu Health Centre by Warwick Fiji today.

The Hon. Minister for Health & Medical Services Mr Jone Usamate said, “We are grateful for this timely donation. Korolevu Health Centre is located along a very busy highway and having such equipment will definitely  assist in times of emergencies.

“We are grateful to the hoteliers, Warwick Fiji for fulfilling this need as the health centre also administers to tourists. I am aware that the hotel has also assisted with renovating the doctors and nurses quarters”.

Warwick Fiji is also providing the health centre with Paediatric Pulse Oximeter which will assist in accessing sick children with respiratory infections.

The Korolevu Health Centre looks after 7 villages, 16 settlements, 4 resorts and 3 schools catering for a population of about 4000.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health & Medical Services appreciates the ongoing public private partnership as it provides support and assistance in improving health services.
