AMMAN — The newly renovated emergency department at Jerash Hospital officially opened on Tuesday, according to a USAID statement.

US Ambassador to Jordan Stuart E. Jones, Health Ministry Secretary General Deifallah Lozi and USAID Deputy Mission Director Doug Ball inaugurated the department, whose renovations were funded by USAID at a total cost of approximately $1.7 million.

The existing emergency department was expanded from 450 square metres to 1,850 sq.m.

“The United States has been proud to partner with the public health sector in Jordan to help improve the health status of all Jordanians,” the statement quoted Jones as saying.

The renovation was implemented by the USAID-funded “Health Systems Strengthening II” project.
