Kilinochchi hospital being rebuilt

Healthcare and Nutrition Ministry is now rebuilding the Kilinochchi Base Hospital for the second time. It was completely destroyed by the LTTE a few months back after the Ministry completely rebuilt it at a cost of Rs.500 million, a Ministry spokesman said.

At present the Ministry is rebuilding the hospital to cater to 30,000 IDPs who have already been resettled in the area. The Ministry has plans to obtain assistance from INGOs and foreign Governments for this purpose.

The Ministry will supply 100 beds and Rs.1 million (to repair the electricity circuit) within a few days. Ten doctors and 15 nurses will also be assigned shortly. Arrangements will be made to provide all the other modern medical equipment and facilities within six months and bring the hospital to its original status. The Healthcare and Nutrition Ministry rebuilt the hospital with the financial assistance of the Asian Development Fund and provided all modern facilities including 275 beds, around 40 nurses and 15 doctors just before the LTTE destroyed it.

The Kilinochchi hospital building complex was built in the same model as the Colombo National Hospital.

Before the terrorists moved to Mullaitivu, they completely destroyed the hospital and took away all medical equipment, beds and everything with them. They destroyed the whole electricity circuit of the remaining buildings before they left. At the moment only 10 beds remain in the hospital.

The Ministry is in the process of rebuilding the state hospital network, especially Jaffna Teaching Hospital at a cost of Rs.2850 m in the North under `Uthuru Vasanthaya' program.
