Within weeks of launching its $4.5 million MRI Project, Oceania Hospitals has yet again achieved another one of its key milestones. Earlier this week
Oceania Hospitals launched a fully equipped in-House Birthing facility. This was one of the many initiatives that are in various stages of progress.
At the 20th anniversary celebration in September 2021, the hospital had committed to over $10 million worth of capital investments in the short to medium term, as a demonstration of staying true to their commitment to add value to the healthcare sector in Fiji.
The Birthing facility was officially launched by the Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services Dr James Fong.
The Permanent Secretary thanked the Management and Board of Oceania Hospitals for continuing to invest and adding value to the quality of private healthcare service offered in Fiji.
Also speaking at the official launch, the OHPL Board Chairman Dr Wame Baravilala thanked the sole shareholder, BSP Life for their unwavering support throughout the hospitals lifespan which clearly demonstrates its confidence and long term commitment to the healthcare industry in this country.
Dr Baravilala commented that the major aim of the birthing facility is to provide the most comforting and pleasant experience for mothers that plan to deliver in a private facility. We all know the pain and discomfort our mothers and pregnant ladies have to go through during their pregnancy.
The new birthing facility which is equipped with enhanced equipment and resources plans to make this journey as pleasant as possible.
The birthing facility consists of 2 Maternity Suites, an NICU and single and shared ward rooms. The team of experts specialize in Obstetrics,
Gynecology, Neonatology and Pediatrics and will be available 24/7 to ensure the best maternity care service to the clients. The team of midwives have the relevant skills and experience to manage difficult and complicated cases during pregnancy and birth. They are also trained to deal with emergency situations such as emergency caesareans.
The birthing facility will offer a high quality, safe, comfortable and caring environment for labour, birth and maternity care.
Oceania Hospitals is pleased to be in a position to complement the public health care system. It plans to work closely with the Fijian Government and the Ministry of Health in introducing new services and complementing the current services that are available in our healthcare industry thereby aligning with the national health care strategy.
The hospital is resolute in forging ahead with its ambitious investment agenda and deliver on its vision – To be the preferred provider in quality private healthcare and diagnostics for the South Pacific through clinical and service excellence.
