Prime Minister James Marape assures Central Province to have its New Hospital built


Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape has assured the people of Central Province that a provincial hospital will be built at  Bautama.

 ''Past governments have promised to build a hospital for Central people and we will review that, we have also allowed for a hospital to be built at Bautama.

''In fact last year and this year we have allocated K10 million for earthwork to start at Bautama,'' said Marape.

Mr Marape was responding to questions from Abau MP, Sir Puka Temu on how soon the government will release funding to build a provincial hospital for Central Province. 

Member for Abau Sir Puka Temu has raised concerns in parliament this week, about people of Central Province being turned away from hospitals. 

He says the Gerehu and Port Moresby General Hospital is stretched and can not take in new patients due to the surge in COVID - 19 cases in the National Capital District.

Currently, Central Province does not have a proper hospital.
