Begum Zubaida Bani Wing

2003 saw the opening of the new gynaecology/obstetrics unit at the hospital, Begum Zubaida Bani Wing. The 3-storey modern facility was opened to provide a wide range of medical/surgical services for women including gynaecology outpatient's clinic, gynaecology, antenatal/postnatal wards and operation theatre. Also incorporated in the building is the paediatric ICU unit. The department has a 24-hour delivery suite with approximately 900 delivery cases annually. The new building has a modern décor with large waiting areas, including a children's play area in the outpatient's clinic, and well decorated, fully air-conditioned private rooms, central oxygen supply & suction units. Begum Zub-aida Bani Wing also has a separate set-up for hepatitis patients.
