As Macao's economy and society are growing prosperously, the density of population as well as visitor figures continue to rise dramatically and this results in higher demands for medical services. In view of the development needs of medical services as well as the betterment of local medical and health care facilities, the Macao SAR Government is now undergoing various phases of construction works of the Islands District Medical Complex (hereinafter referred to as "the Complex"). This not only serves as a milestone for medical development in Macao but also facilitates Macao's medical standard with the international ones.
In order to enhance the understanding of the design and available services of the Complex amongst teachers and students so that they are able to get prepared for their future roles, Kiang Wu Nursing College of Macau (KWNC) invited Dr. Chou Kuok Hei, Coordinator of the Expansion and Construction Office of the Macao Health Bureau, as the guest speaker of the Theme Talk which took place at the Lecture Theatre of KWNC Main Campus on 7 April, 2017. Dr. Chou introduced to participants the current medical situations in Macao as well as the major facilities and services of the Complex. Other attending guests included Vice-Chair of Board of Directors of KWNC Mr. Ung Hon Chao and Mr. Sio Chi Wai, KWNC President Van Iat Kio, staff, teachers and students.
To close the theme talk, President Van expressed gratitude to the Macao SAR Government and Health Bureau for their mutual contributions to building the Complex. She explained that the medical services are closely related to the quality of people's life, therefore she hoped all nursing students will pay close attention to the development of medical systems in Macao so that they are able to contribute their talents to the profession and to continue to optimize local medical services.
