However, the hospital has limited facilities with only a small laboratory, a pharmacy, a x-ray machine and an operating room. Tungaru is the only hospital on Kiribati (aside from a small unit on Christmas Island) and residents of the republic travel from all over the islands to receive medical treatment at the hospital. Doctors who work at the hospital are from all over the world.
