The Labour ward at the Colonial War Memorial hospital in Suva is expected to be fully operational by Monday next week.
Minister for Health and Medical Services, Rosy Akbar says the cleanup and minor renovation and painting works has been completed.
However, she says the team at the labour ward have requested for additional cleanup to remove the debris.
”The services are continuing in the relocated ward but from Monday we expect the services bee shifted back to the original labour ward. I have paid a visit there last week, I am very much happy with the way the work has progressed and that’s the way forward. We will do minor work and we will do major works wherever it is necessary and we have identified areas where work needs to be done and we continue to carry it as it goes on.”
The labour ward at the hospital was temporarily relocated to the birthing unit to accommodate for the cleaning of the delivery rooms.
