THE Labasa Hospital has become Fiji's safest hospital to deliver babies for expectant mothers.

Hospital's medical superintendent Dr Jaoji Vulibeci confirmed Labasa Hospital had passed the 90 per cent mark in the Mother Safe Hospital initiative audit.

"This is the only hospital in Fiji that has gone pass the 90 per cent mark and it makes Labasa Hospital the safest hospital to deliver your baby," he said.

"We have the only labour ward with the highest number of midwives per shift and almost all graduated from the Labasa Sangam Nursing School have used the ANZ Labour Ward as their teaching arena. Our stillbirths have been reduced by 50 per cent."

Dr Vulibeci said the assistance from foreign medical teams boosted the hospital's supply of equipment and machines in treating patients.

He said early this year the hospital was given the obstetrics and gynaecological equipment by the Friends of Fiji team from New Zealand.
