New maternity hospital planned

Mothers are hopeful to give birth in a more secure and comfortable environment. Government head and Health Minister promised that a new maternity hospital would be built and current maternity hospitals will be modified by next year. After seeing the maintenance work and activity of Maternity Hospital #1 on June 18, Prime Minister S. Batbold said, “I met mothers and they are satisfied. It is the start of our works to be implemented for the health of mothers and infants.

It is planned to build a new maternity hospital that will be implemented through stages. The required budget of Tgs19 billion was included in this year’s budget to maintain Maternity Hospital #2 and to build a new hospital. The Health Ministry was assigned to manage fast and quality construction of the new maternity hospital.” He also stated there much to be done in the health sector. Infants became infected due to a sewage leak in Maternity Hospital #1.
Pregnant mothers and patients were transferred to other hospitals and the hospital’s activity was halted from January 18, 2010. After three months maintenance work, medical services and treatments resumed at the hospital.
Despite growing number of births in recent years, there have been no new maternity hospitals, currently operating hospitals have not been substantially maintained, and the maternity hospitals operate over capacity. It causes unsanitary conditions in the hospitals and some cases of infectious disease occur. During that period, the Prime Minister told MPs that conditions are alarming and infant’s infectious disease may occur because the space per an infant is smaller by three-fold than the standard due to increased density at maternity hospitals and not having a new hospital.
Maternity Hospital #1 was put into operation in 1959 and was enlarged in 1971. The enlargement section (11,000 sq.m) of the hospital was completely maintained and sanitation and ventilator systems suitable for the hospital were installed. The maintenance work cost a total of Tgs2.1 billion. The hospital has 240 beds. It was resolved to build a new one and replace the old two story section of the hospital instead of maintaining it. Health Minister S. Lambaa said that a modern 8-story maternity hospital will be built.
