Ba Hospital Resumes Day Surgeries

The Aspen Medical-managed Ba Hospital has resumed day surgeries with
effect from 16 January 2024 following a nearly one-year hiatus.

The temporary cessation of day surgeries was primarily attributed to staffing

Aspen Medical’s Director of Medical Services, Dr Mara Vukivukiseru, said,
“With an expanded perioperative team, we are poised to conduct up to
three-day surgeries at least twice weekly.”

The reinstatement of day surgeries at Ba Hospital will serve the communities
of Ba, Tavua, Rakiraki, and Lautoka. Plans to increase the volume of surgeries
are being developed.

Aspen Medical’s CEO in Fiji, Gavin Whiteside, said, “Aspen Medical remains
dedicated to upholding the highest standards of healthcare delivery, and this
resumption signifies a pivotal step forward in ensuring access to essential
medical services for the public.”
