PHUKET: -- The new Chalong Hospital, which has been under construction since mid-2016, is now “50- 60%” complete, Dr Lersak Leenanithikul, the head of emergency department at Vachira Phuket Hospital, has confirmed.

 

The hospital is slated to open before the end of next year.

 

However, the new facility, located opposite Chalong Home Pro village on Chao Fa West Rd just north of Chalong Circle, will initially be able to hold only 90 beds, not 200 as previously anticipated (see story here), he told The Phuket News.

 

“It will not be able to hold as many beds as planned upon opening. Perhaps about five years down the line, the number of beds can be gradually increased to 200,” Dr Lersak said.

 

“The four-storey, reinforced-steel building will accept both emergencies and admissions, and will include one emergency room and four operating rooms,” Dr Lersak said.
