Upon the opening of the unit, the facility shall run a free medical camp between 12th-14th July 2024.

The unit is being built using FIF (Facility Improvement Financing), a law that was enacted during Governor Timamy’s reign and will go a long way to boosting the hospital revenue to help expand other areas further.
