New Yangon Specialist Hospital to open in 2 years

The new Yangon Specialist Hospital, a state-of-the-art medical facility, will be completed in two years with the help of Japan’s International Cooperation Agency and the Department of Medical Services.

Japanese Ambassador Ichiro Maruyama said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had given the green light for the project.

“Our Prime Minister approved this project in coordination with Myanmar’s government leaders. I’m so proud of starting this project,” he said at the groundbreaking ceremony for the facility on Sunday.

The medical facility would specialise in patient-centred medical and healthcare services for cerebral and cardiovascular diseases. It will have all the equipment needed to treat advanced heart disease and illnesses of the nervous system.

Construction of the 316-bed hospital will commence on Wednesday and is expected to be completed on April 30, 2021.

It will include a 20-bed Intensive Care Unit. The seven-storey hospital, located at the corner of Pyay Road and Min Ye Kyaw Zwa Road in Lanmadaw township, will have over 27,000 square metres of space.

It will be country’s first national institute for cerebral and cardiovascular diseases offering teaching and research.

“The new hospital will be very helpful for the elderly. I absolutely believe that the death rate of senior citizens who suffer cerebral and cardiovascular diseases will decline,” Health and Sports Minister Myint Htwe said.

The Myanmar government will earmark K42 billion (US$27.58 million) for the hospital while the Japanese government will provide ¥8.66 billion (K117.8 billion/US$77.53 million).
