THE people of Abau in Central will soon be enjoying the services of a new hospital, to be constructed under the government’s tax credit scheme at a cost of K18 million.
The construction of the hospital will be managed by Oil Search, working in partnership with the government to deliver the vital service.
Construction work on the new hospital, at Kupiano, started immediately after the ground-breaking ceremony earlier this month.
It is scheduled for completion late next year.
The new hospital will fulfil a massive need for the people of the district, who rely mostly on facilities with limited capacity that have dilapidated over the years.
The ceremony was attended by Public Service Minister and Abau MP Sir Puka Temu, deputy Central governor Desmond Baira, Oil Search general manager, special projects, Willie Kupo and community members.
Sir Puka thanked Oil Search for  undertaking the tax credit scheme project which would benefit Abau.
“We really appreciate what the hospital will do for us. I know that Oil Search has assisted many Papua New Guineans and we want to say thank you for helping to make a difference in the lives of the people of Abau,” Sir Puka said.
Kupo said Oil Search was happy to partner  the government to deliver much-needed services to the people of PNG.
