Maternity Hospital No. 3 opens to serve Bayanzurkh District residents


Bayanzurkh, the city’s largest district out of nine, opened the new State Maternity Hospital No.3 (MSH3) on Thursday. Construction of the hospital took four years to complete.
With the new hospital, MSH3 has tripled the district’s maternity patient capacity. It is now capable of providing gynecological, surgical, maternity, afterbirth care, intensive care, and newborn care services for women living in the 28 khoroos of Bayanzurkh District.
The district, with a population of 330,000 residents, had only one small maternity hospital for 45 patients until MSH3 came along. The small hospital was relocated and the new building of MSH3 was constructed on its foundation.
“The new, seven-story MSH3 was fully equipped with the latest medical technology with a 1.5 million USD grant aid from the Government of Japan. Each room has access to air conditioning and oxygen supply systems. A total of 223 medical staff are working at the hospital with a view to provide the best possible services for mothers and babies,” said S.Ganbold, vice chief in charge of therapy at MSH3.
The hospital opened a separate gynecology ward with 30 beds and hopes to prevent and cure many conditions for women of the district. Mothers in need of gynecological treatment were transferred to State Maternity Hospital No.1 before.
“A parking lot for over 200 cars and footpaths were constructed outside the hospital to allow enough space for the patients’ families,” added S.Ganbold.
MSH3 was planned to open in spring of 2012, but was delayed due to a lack of experts who could design the building at the time, as was explained by the previous Ministry of Health.
After the tender bid was finished, the original constructor left the project after laying only the foundation of the hospital with one billion MNT in funding from the state.
A second tender in July 2012 selected another executor, but the company failed to complete construction. After seeing many different executor companies, the new building has finally opened this year.
