2.) Construction of the Punakha Training Centre for Technical-Medical Staff,

in adapted Bhutanese architecture, based on the agreement of May 1997. The design is from Fritz Baumgartner, a Swiss architect, living in Bhutan. The construction commenced in May 1998. It comprises two buildings erected near the hospital, one with 3 lecture rooms and one office, the other with 6 rooms with 24 beds for trainees and 2 tutors.

Again it was His Holiness, the Je Kempo who, together with the Prime Minister, simultaneously Minister of Health and Education, Lyonpo Sangay Ngedup, inaugurated the centre in November 1999.

The trainees add to the hospital staff as they receive part of their practical training in the hospital. This centre, offering the only major lecture hall in the Punakha area, is very well used also by the Punakha Dzongkhag ( District ) administration and other Government units for seminars etc..
