Basra Neighborhood Gains New Primary Health Clinic
The Basra region has received a new healthcare clinic, and it was constructed directly as a result of efforts by the coalition. The coalition has worked to construct a number of different facilities, and through the efforts of Iraqi Security Forces, Coalition construction elements, and local Iraqi Government it has been successful.
Now there are thousands of local residents in the region that have access to the healthcare that it will provide. Formerly residents had to drive over 20 kilometers to get different medical care services.
The new healthcare center will be able to serve about 300 patients a day, and can help and assist all different ages, newborn babies to the very old. There are two coalition doctors that are assisting with establishing services, and then doctors from the Iraqi Army and civilian Iraqi doctors will provide services on the long term.
The new clinic provides state of the art equipment, as well as facilities that provide different opportunities and resources. The clinic will eventually have as many as 40 personnel when fully staffed. It will serve the Basra region and provide the community with fast emergency resources, that will serve the whole area with pride.
More and more facilities of this type are being constructed, and they are part of the overall effort to modernize and bring up to date services for members of the Iraqi public.
