Central Provincial Hospital

Govt vows to deliver Central Provincial Hospital

Minister for Health and HIV/AIDS, Elias Kapavore, made this undertaking on the floor of Parliament yesterday (July 4).

Central Province is the only province in the country that does not have a provincial hospital.

Governor Robert Agarobe raised this concern in Parliament, calling on the Government to deliver on its commitments to the people of Central Province.

Plans afoot for Central Province Hospital

Minister for Planning and Monitoring, Richard Maru, says the Government has set aside funding for the project.

The 400-bed hospital project, which was announced in February 2016 and endorsed by the provincial government, is now being fast tracked by the Government.

Minister Maru said the move is to lessen the demand on the Port Moresby General Hospital, which is expected to be upgraded.
