WE deliver, we serve and we walk the talk without making false promises.

These were the words of the Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama who officially opened the new government-funded operation theatre and a cardiology centre at the CWM Hospital in Suva yesterday.

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama said the commissioning of phase one of the refurbishment of the operation theatre and cardiology centre had a standard of effective and quality deliverance of health services to the people.

He said the opening of the operation centre would enable the people of Fiji with heart problems to receive better care and services.

He added the recruiting of more nurses, doctors and skilled medical surgeons would minimise the number of Fijians going out of the country to receive heart operations, as the CWM Hospital was on its way to becoming the cardiac hub operation centre for the Pacific region.

The new heart operation centre was accomplished with a gift of $200,000 by the Indian Government.
