Magway region hospital will provide better treatment after upgrading the hospital, said an official from Magway region hospital.
On 26 October, the Treatment Department (Nay Pyi Taw) granted upgrading of Magway region hospital to 500-bed from 200-bed hospital.
“The upgrading to a 500-bed hospital is aimed at promoting the treatment of neurology, neuro-medical, kidney, cancer and radiation cases. If the Ministry of Health and Sports appoints more senior physicians, it will be better for the people in Magway region. Upon completion of upgrading, the patients who have cancer, neurology and neuro-medical cases will not need to go to Mandalay, Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw,” said Dr Win Win Htay, the medical superintendent of Magway hospital.
A five-storey building in Magway hospital compound was constructed through the spending of Union budget and regional government funds.
The construction of the building is completed, and it is currently used as the COVID-19 treatment centre. The construction of three-storey obstetrics and gynaecology ward at the spending of US$12.8 million from JICA is almost completed, and the new ward will be handed over to the treatment department at the end of November. “Now, the Magway hospital is running with over 500 medical staffers.
Now, the hospital is upgraded into a 500-bed hospital, and more physicians and staff will be appointed,” said Dr Win Win Htay. Although Magway hospital is called 200-bed hospital, it is providing treatment to 500 patients daily. The hospital was opened in 1964. —Zayyatu (Magway) (Translated by Hay Mar)
