New Primary Health Center Constructed By Coalition
Many new facilities are being constructed across Iraq, including an additional new Primary Care health center in Basrah. There was a previously constructed healthcare center for the region that was completed by the Coalition in 2007, but the new center will aid additional Iraqi Citizens, as well as ease the crowding in Basra medical facilities.
The new PHC will give additional services to the Iraqi people and improve the overall representative care and medical service in Iraq. One of the health issues that the new center will assist in is in pharmacy services.
The new health care center will additionally feature an X ray facility, a dental care area, maternity facilities for new mothers, and a totally modern fire prevention and alarm system.
Much of the older construction in Iraq does not have sprinklers or fire alarm provisions, so new construction often has the latest in fire prevention construction and the latest in fire alarm provisions.
The other health care facility in Basrah will now be able to breathe a sigh of relief, and it will not have to work near as hard to provide for the people in Basrah. Before the two health care facilities were constructed citizens had to travel for several hours to receive medical care, now there are two facilities to tend to their needs right in Basrah.
