A Mon businessman, Min Banyar San, has requested the Chief Minister of Mon State, Ohn Myint, to allow him to build a private hospital in Mon State.

Speaking to Kaowao, Min Banyar San, who runs a hotel chain in Singapore and Cambodia, said that he has been allowed by Ohn Myint to build a private hospital.

He [Ohn Myint] told us to find land to build the hospital. However, he will give it final consideration to be sure and get a suitable price for the land.

Ohn Myint has commented on the difficulty of acquiring land in Moulmein, the capital of Mon State. He did say, however, that Tala Mon company will give land to be used for the new hospital.

Currently, there is no private hospital in Mon State. There is only a public hospital in Moulmein, and those seeking the services of a private hospital have to have the resources to travel to Rangoon for such care. The public hospital in Moulmein has poor management and poor qualities for treatment.

“There are many Mon people who need to travel to Rangoon when they are in need of the quality care that one can expect from a private hospital. This is why I think we should build a private hospital for our Mon,” said Min Banyar San.

Min Banyar San is the son of Nai Thet Lwin, who is the joint chairman of the Mon National Democratic Front (MNDF). The MNDF won five seats at parliament during 1990 election in Mon State.
