Hospital project for Western Rural District in full gear
The people of Mile 13 in the Western Area Rural District will very soon have a very long health facility problem resolved. Currently, most people have to travel miles and miles away for proper medical attention. The construction of a modern private clinic by a professional Chemist Abdul R. Conteh and his wife Aminata Conteh is being seen as a step in the right direction and in line with Government’s Agenda for Prosperity.
With twenty years experience working for various pharmaceutical companies in the USA such as Dupont Pharmaceutical, Bristol Myers Company etc., Mr. Conteh’s intervention with an estimated US$2m hospital project is being lauded by both community people and the Government of Sierra Leone through the Ministry of Health and Sanitation.
The project contains facilities like Nurses Station and reception, doctor’s office, four toilets, four examination rooms, three offices for hospital administration, pharmacy, laboratory, children’s ward, men’s ward and female ward etc.
The Sierra Leone Chemist and his wife are being supported by a Sierra Leone philanthropic organization based in the USA called Accesscare Inc. The organization recently shipped a 40 ft. container with medical equipment such as hospital beds, mattresses, blood pressure machines, stretchers, scales, disposable thermometers, tables, chairs, medical carts, wheelchairs, fridges, filing cabinets, etc.
In an interview with this press, the pioneer of the project Abdul R. Conteh said very soon they will start the construction of a theatre, staff quarters and admission wards in addition to another existing building that is meant for storage facilities, laundry, and kitchen and bedroom apartments for doctors. The entire project, he said will be officially commissioned on 27th April 2015 (Independence Day). This, he said would enable Sierra Leone to provide modern health facilities, hence reduce maternal deaths and contribute to improving the health of citizens.
