Management of the facility took advantage of this year’s event to showcase services which have been relocated due to the ongoing redevelopment project. This was to assure the general public that not a single service in the facility has been shut down. Rather, services such as Accident and Emergency, Dialysis, CT scan, medical and surgical wards have moved to newly renovated spaces around the Hospital.
