He stressed the “need to build outpatient and sick wards and [a] glasses shop in keeping with the modern aesthetic taste in favor of treatment of the patients and service activities” and said that “preparations should be made well in advance for smooth operation of the hospital while speeding up its construction.  The hospital should be built into the country’s modern ophthalmic one…the Party would be entirely responsible for the provision of modern medical equipment and various furnishings necessary for its operation.”  Jong Un also said that the “Party would provide the sufficient material and technical means to the hospital’s glasses shop so that it can manufacture glasses on the basis of scientific diagnosis and prescription and serve glasses of various types and functions according to the tastes, sex and age of citizens.”

Kim Jong Un noted that “when the Ryugyo’ng General Ophthalmic Hospital is built, we can say that we have built various kinds of modern medical service center one by one every year recently…this is a powerful demonstration of the advantage of our socialist healthcare system in which the Party and the state take full responsibility for the life and health of the people.”  He expressed his “belief that the builders would successfully complete the construction of the hospital before October 10, the founding anniversary of the WPK.”
