Like all civilian hospitals in Burma, it lacks even basic healthcre facilities and the military regime spends approximately just 1% of GDP on healthcare. The building was a major massacre site during the 8888 Uprising, in which injured patients, assumed to have taken part in the anti-government protests, were killed by the Tatmadaw. It is closed to tourists.
