“This one is particularly pleasing as the hospital has been recognised for its design on the international stage.”
The new hospital treats around 400,000 patients and in addition to outpatient clinics, day surgery and diagnostic services, provides specialist services such as cardiology, renal dialysis and gynaecology.
