Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi opened renovated Malietoa Tanumafili II Hospital in Tuasivi, Savai’i, on Tuesday.
The $6million project funded by New Zealand, Australia and the World Bank, will give some 46,000 residents on the big island the chance to access quality health care.
The facilities include an extended Eye clinic, Dental clinic, Pharmacy, Medical record’s room, Emergency room, Maternity ward and Community service rooms.
“These works are all part of the government’s continuous commitment to improve the conditions and quality of health care services in Savai’i,” said Tuilaepa.
Acting High Commissioner for New Zealand, Michael Walsh, said the facility guarantees accessibility for the people of Savai’i to improved health service delivery.
