The Palestinian health ministry officially opened on Sunday an Indonesian funded hospital to serve residents of north Gaza according to a report in Middle East Monitor.
The old hospital that served the area, Kamal Adwan hospital, has been closed down for renovations and maintenance.
The new hospital, built by the Republic of Indonesia, contains 110 beds, including 10 for intensive care cases.
“The Indonesian hospital is an important healthcare addition, with high-quality medical facilities to serve the residents of north Gaza,” the ministry’s spokesman Dr Ashraf Al-Qudra said, speaking to Quds Press.
Dr Al-Quda alo said that the hospital provides special medical care service in the fields of internal medicine, surgery and orthopaedics. He also pointed out that the hospital also has CT scan, the most advanced in Gaza yet, and four highly equipped operating theatres, in addition to an intensive care unit, qualified medical doctors and nurses.
He expressed optimism about the hospital’s ability to lead to a significant shift in medical services provided in Gaza.
The ministry will renovate the Kamal Adwan Hospital and during renovations medical services for children will be temporarily offered in other hospitals in Gaza – namely al-Nasr, al-Durra, Bait Hanoun and Balsam hospitals.
The ministry spokesman called on all citizens who receive health care at the Kamal Adwan hospital to continue doing so at the new Indonesian hospital.
