Remarks of President of the Republic of Indonesia at the Inauguration of Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI) General L.B. Moerdani Modular Hospital, 3 October 2021, in Margamulya District, Merauke Regency, Papua Province
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
May peace be upon us all,
Honorable Speaker of the House of Representatives Puan Maharani,
Honorable Minister of Defense and Ministers of Indonesia Onward Cabinet attending this event,
Honorable Commander of the Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI) and all the ranks,
Honorable Regent of Merauke,
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,
Alhamdulillah, this afternoon, the TNI General L.B. Moerdani Hospital is already established and ready to serve the community, especially the community of Merauke regency.
The establishment of the hospital is completed very fast, in approximately 20 days, and it was initially intended to serve COVID-19 patients in Papua province, especially in Merauke regency. Since COVID-19 cases now are going down, the number of cases has dropped, the hospital can support the 20th National Sports Week (PON XX) in Papua, and then it can provide services to the community after the National Sports Week ends. I see that the hospital has complete facilities for isolation, quarantine, laboratory, emergency, operation theater, and also pharmacy to handle patients who need fast, easy, and affordable health services.
In the current pandemic, health facilities are highly needed, especially by people in remote areas. Therefore, the people can get hospital services whenever they have health problems. This hospital should be used properly to serve all communities with fast and comfortable services
I conclude my remarks here. By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, in the name of God the Merciful and the Compassionate, I declare the TNI General L.B. Moerdani Hospital officially inaugurated.
I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
May God bless us all. (AW/MMB)
