The Zamzam Village Hospital, located in Wadi Zamzam Municipality, 100 km east of Misurata, has developed a surgery department to improve the service delivered to the local people of the area.
An opening ceremony was held on Tuesday to mark the occasion with the participation of the Local Council members and doctors of the Field Hospital.
"Thanks to God and the efforts of the Field Hospital staff, an integrated operations department was opened at Zamzam Village Hospital for the first time since it opened in 1984, a statement by the Field Hospital said on Facebook.
The new department will spare local people from making long journeys to larger hospitals in other cities to undergo surgeries. It will also provide medical services to the Libyan army forces stationed in the fronts near Sirte, the Field Hospital explained.
On opening day, the doctors at the surgery department conducted two surgeries, one of which was for a war-wounded officer and the other for a resident who had his gallbladder removed, according to the Field Hospital.
