Pyongyang Maternity Hospital with 35-Year History
The magnificent Pyongyang Maternity Hospital is situated in Munsu Street in Taedonggang District, Pyongyang.
A general medical centre for women’s health promotion, the hospital was inaugurated on July 30, Juche 69 (1980), the 34th anniversary of the DPRK’s promulgation of the Law on Sex Equality. Since then, it has rendered various medical services to millions of women, contributing to their health promotion.
Its 35-year history is unthinkable separated from the warm care of the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il for women and children. They proposed building a modern hospital to provide women with better conditions for prophylactic treatment, and showed close concern for its construction processes and medical services after inauguration. Busy as they were with pressing state affairs, they gave valuable instructions for the project, and when its construction was completed, they came to the hospital and solved all problems arising in its medical services and management. Thanks to their concern it has developed into a modern medical centre equipped with 1 000-odd medical and management facilities.
There all women are enjoying the benefit of free medical care from the delivery of babies to other types of medical treatment. Besides, maternity services are also given to women in childbed at the state expense. They are provided with wild honey, seaweed and various medicines according to their conditions. Mothers who have given birth to triplets or quadruplets and their new-born babies come under the special care of doctors until the mothers get well again and their babies weigh 4 kg. For 35 years 450 sets of triplets and quadruplets were born at the hospital.
Under the close concern of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the state the Breast Tumour Institute with a floor space of 8 500 square metres was newly built three years ago. The institute consists of mammary gland CT room, X-ray room, tumour treatment room, other diagnosis and treatment rooms, research rooms and scores of wards and has tens of thousands of medical facilities and appliances of 70 kinds.
The maternity hospital is dear to many foreign and overseas Korean women, too.
Thousands of foreign women received medical treatment, hundreds of whom were delivered of their babies there. Jindallae and Solmae of Palestine and Saeppyol of Cuba were born in the hospital under the benefit of free medical care. Hwang Son, a south Korean woman, gave birth to a baby girl on October 10 Juche 94 (2005) during her stay in Pyongyang.
Foreign visitors said with admiration: Women’s palace of human ideal with an assortment of up-to-date facilities can be built only in socialist Korea where man is valued most. We keenly felt the advantages of the Korean socialist health system. We saw a women’s general hospital, which is the most gorgeous and wonderful in the world.
The hospital has become home to women’s wellbeing and the cradle of their children.
