New Medical Centre offers free treatment

District Officer Peni Koro opened a New Medical Centre in Nadi on July 2.

Operated by the Ramakrishna Mission, the ‘Sarada Medical Centre,’ a charitable institution is the first in Fiji to offer free basic medical services and medicines.

Swami Tadananda said that the Centre would charge $3 for registration.

“The Mission has been providing free mobile medical clinics in the greater Western Division since 2009, following a spate of devastating floods. We had set up 33 medical camps to attend to more than 3000 patients,” he said.

He said that the Centre was not a ‘new service,’ but a ‘standing complement’ to the existing mobile medical clinic.

“Health is a major focus of operation for the Ramakrishna Mission in India where it operates 15 hospitals and 120 medical centres.

Commending the activities of the Mission, Mr Koro said that the facility would make a major difference to those in need.

“Your organisation has been providing the much-needed relief efforts during the recent floods which adversely affected the Western Division. The new Medical Centre will strengthen the good work of the Mission,” he said.

Mr Koro affirmed the support of the Government for projects undertaken and implemented by all non-governmental organisations in Fiji.

General practitioner Dr Gunasagaran Gounder and Nurse Mereia Bogitini will provide services to the public from Monday to Friday every week.

The Ramakrishna Mission plans to establish a similar centre in Suva and has secured a plot of land.
