North Okkalapa hospital to be upgraded to 1500-bed hospital

May 16, 2017
North Okkalapa General Hospital in North Okkalapa Township, Yangon Region will be upgraded to a 1500-bed hospital, said a hospital official.

Currently, North Okkalapa General Hospital has an 800- bed capacity.

In order to make the upgrade, a proposal will be submitted to the relevant authority with a request to provide more required doctors, nurses, health care staff, buildings, medicine and other medical necessities.

North Okkalapa needs to be upgraded into a 1500-bed hospital because there are an average of 50,000 inpatients and 200,000 outpatients a year. Most of the patients are from Yangon, Ayeyawady, Bago, Magway regions, and Mon and Rakhine states. North Okkalapa General Hospital was constructed on a 29.37-acre plot of land. The hospital opened as an 800-bed facility in February, 2016.
