Kim Jong Un Visits Children’s Hospital, Dental Hospital Under Construction


Pyongyang, July 16 (KCNA) — Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, Tuesday provided field guidance to the children’s hospital and dental hospital now under construction.

The first leg of his guidance was the children’s hospital.

Commanding a bird’s eye view of the construction site, he heard a report on the progress made in the construction from commanding officers of the unit.

Going round various places of the site, he learned in detail whether the construction was going on qualitatively as required by the design.

He was satisfied to learn that the soldier-builders have pushed forward the project after winding up the frame work in the main in a brief span of time since they broke the ground for it.

The second leg of his visit was the dental hospital.

He asked about the progress made in the project and issues arising in pressing ahead with it.

He set forth the tasks to be fulfilled for the construction of the hospitals after looking round the construction sites.

He said that what is important in building the hospitals is to carry out the projects qualitatively, equip the hospitals with modern medical appliances and make good preparations for successfully operating them.

In order to build the children’s hospital and dental hospital in a modern way as required by the new century, it is necessary to fully equip the hospitals with ultra-modern medical appliances including multi-purpose roentgen, CT and comprehensive dental treatment apparatuses, he noted.

He underscored the need to provide the hospitals not only with the equipment to be used for preventing diseases, conducting diagnosis and treatment and promoting health according to the nature and services of the hospitals but with articles necessary for patients’ living in a far-sighted manner.

Noting that there is nothing to spare for the good of the people and children, he said that the WPK would provide medical equipment, TV sets, refrigerators, etc. for the wards.

He expressed expectation and belief that the builders and officials concerned would successfully complete the projects by the anniversary of the WPK.

He was accompanied by Pak Pong Ju, Ri Jae Il, Ma Won Chun and Ho Hwan Chol. -0-
