A multi-million kina state of the art health facility will be built in Port Moresby by privately run health institution, Pacific Medical Centre (PMC).
Chairman, Evan Paki, says this facility will boost the delivery of health services in the country with local and international medical expertise.
Following the launching of the project model, EMTV News visited the proposed site today.
The project cost is valued at more than US$150 million, or over K400 million.
According to the PMC project master plan, the land will be developed into an ’emerald city’.
“This emerald city is a fully master-planned with medical amenities and oceanfront within NCD designed to support Papua New Guineans in line with National Health Plan 2011-2012 and Health Vision 2050,” Paki said.
It covers a total land area of 2,000 hectares which is part of state land, that PMC claimed to have had land titles and state leases to.
Portion 2734 starts from Dogura, along the Magi Highway, and extends inland towards the fringes of Pacific Adventist University, Bautama, and Bush Wara areas. Portions 2910 extend from Giboea towards the coast.
In 2009, the national government through its NEC decision endorsed PMC to enhance health services by investing in the public health sector.
Project Manager, Steven Moses, speaking on site said the project is into its third phase which is mainly involving a feasibility study and planning for the construction phase in October.
The project will go through seven phases.
