THE run-down Marau clinic has now been relocated to the mini-hospital building built by John Sullivan few years ago.

The clinic could not continue on providing health care in the deteriorating state of the building it was once housed, thus has to be relocated to the mini-hospital building that was built but never used for some years now.

John Sullivan told the Solomon Star that he had agreed for the clinic to be moved into the building he built in Marau, where it has bigger space to cater for the work of the nurses.

He said that is the latest update on the mini-hospital building that was built but was not completed, so he saw it fit for the clinic to relocate there, given the poor state of the clinic.

Mr Sullivan said the clinic has been operating in that building for some months now and he is looking at possibilities to continue with the unfinished work that left to be completed at the mini-hospital building.

Meanwhile, some members of Marau community thanked Sullivan for his generosity in allowing the relocation of the clinic.

They stated that it is of high risk to the health of the people had the clinic continued on with its operations at the old building.

“It is a relief indeed to accommodate the much-needed health care services into the mini-hospital building that was constructed by Sullivan, with the help of the community,” an elder from a community within the Marau area said.
