A HEALTHY community could lead to a healthy economy, says Ba Chamber of Commerce and Industry acting president Daniel Elisha.

Mr Elisha said the business community in Ba had been working together to ensure the construction of the $23million Ba Hospital ran smoothly.

"We all want to get the best health care and we feel that having a community that receives the best kind of medical attention will ensure we have healthy people who are able to work and contribute to the growth of our economy," he said.

"This new hospital will be a very important link for health centres from Rakiraki to Ba and even to Lautoka."

Mr Elisha said the chamber was in search of companies that would design the plan of the multi-million-dollar health facility.

"We've advertised expression of interest and invited private companies who will present fair designs of the hospital.

"There will be a submission made by these companies and then our committee overlooking this project will select the best design and from there the planning stages will begin before we move into construction."

He said designing a hospital was not an easy process.

"It requires a lot of planning because a health facility needs to be well thought out and have all of the right type of infrastructure for staff and for patients."
