At 1:30pm yesterday (Mar 29) at the Phuket City Municipality Meeting Room, Phuket City Mayor Somjai Suwanasupphan together with Deputy Attorney General of the Office of Litigation at Phuket City Municipality Bantoon Thongtan held a meeting to donate B1.36mn for medical equipment at the upcoming Chalong Hospital.

Mayor Somjai said, “Chalong Hospital still lacks the budget to purchase medical equipment and supplies, which means that it is not yet sufficient to accommodate the number of patients.”

Mayor Somjai noted that Chalong Hospital will be a community hospital featuring 36 beds and will accommodate patients from Chalong, Rawai, Karon and neighbouring areas before transferring them to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

Doctors and nurses from Vachira Phuket Hospital and Thalang Hospitals will provide services at Chalong Hospital, she noted.

The government, private sector, people, and local government agencies in Phuket recognise and give priority to providing assistance to other human beings. Therefore, we jointly fund the purchase of equipment for Chalong Hospital.

In terms of treatment, promotion, rehabilitation and prevention, it recognises the importance of public health service provisiond,” she added.
