AN Australian Government $200,000 upgrade of the Specialist Outpatients Department and Child Health Clinic at the Sigatoka Hospital will be opened today by Senator Brett Mason, the Australian parliamentary secretary to the Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Funding and technical assistance for the upgrade which will benefit 53,000 people in Sigatoka was provided through the Fiji Health Sector Support Program.

Conducted in partnership with the Ministry for Health, the infrastructure upgrade includes the construction of a new disabled persons-friendly toilet, tea room and dirty utility.

The revamp also included construction of separate waiting areas for 25 SOPD patients and 40 sick children and their parents, replacement of electrical wiring, general repair and maintenance works to the exterior of the building.

In a statement issued yesterday, the Fiji Health Sector Support Program said the two departments were in urgent need of upgrades to meet the increased demand for services within the Nadroga-Navosa subdivision.
