THE $30million new Ba Hospital project is the type of private-public partnership that will deliver quality, efficient and transparent service to the people of Fiji, says Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

On Wednesday, the PM said about 140,000 people from Ba, Tavua, Rakiraki and Lautoka would benefit once the new medical facility opened in 2016.

"The spirit of collaboration and community on this project is truly commendable," he said.

"Not only are the Ba Chamber of Commerce and the Ba Hospital Steering Committee playing a key role in partnering with government to ensure the successful completion of the new hospital, but a number of companies and professionals have also come on board and provided their expertise and services free of charge."

The new hospital will have a birthing unit, a 24-hour emergency facility, an X-ray and scan department, a laboratory, a dental unit, operating theatres, a mortuary and a pharmacy.
