CNMI hospital in an unstable state due to lack of doctors

The Commonwealth Health Center in the CNMI is down to just 16 doctors after losing a significant number of physicians in the past few months.

The public health acting deputy secretary for hospital administration, Esther Muna, says the hospital is now in an unstable situation.

Ms Muna says the hospital urgently needs two pediatricians and two internal medicine doctors to cope with the demand.
