St John's Ambulance commissioner Matt Cannon who is working alongside the NCD Provincial Health Authority, Port Moresby General Hospital and National Control Centre says there has been tremendous support from the Australian Government to open a 200-plus field hospital at the Taurama Aquatic Centre.
 
"The hospital will be named after the founder of modern nursing Sister Florence Nightingale
who is a Dame of the Order of St John."
 
"We are initially aiming to have the facility ready to receive up to 120 mild patients," he said.
