ENVISAGED PROJECTS FOR THE REGIONAL HOSPITAL BAMENDA
Following a strategic meeting of the Management Board of the Bamenda Regional Hospital on Wednesday the 23rd of January 2019, the hospital Administration is pleased to sell its envisaged projects to the general public. In a bid to give the hospital a facelift, the hospital Administration thought it wise to take a critical look at some of its facilities which were in a state of dilapidation, renovated some like the B-, C-, E- and F-Wards. Works on the construction of a VIP toilet as well as the resurfacing and tiling of the covered walkways are ongoing.They equally envisage projects such as:
a) Transformation of the Out-patient and Emergency Departments (2 floors);
b) Transformation of the Labour Room, Nursery and Maternity into a Mother & Child Complex (3 floors);
c) Transformation of the Reanimation Block (2 floors);
d) Building of 50 apartments for young doctors and nurses;
e) Purchase of two 30-seater buses for the transportation of personnel;
f) Purchase of two new ambulances;
g) Transformation of New Private Ward (3 floors);
h) Renovation of D-Ward;
i) Renovation of Obstetrics & Gynecology Block for Infant Welfare Clinic and Consultations;
j.) Renovation of Labour Room Theatre;
k.) Renovation of Post-Natal Ward.
The apartments for young doctors and nurses as well as the transport buses for the staff will act as a moral booster for the personnel, especially young doctors and nurses who may still be finding their feet in life and in the profession. This will certainly spur them to better commit themselves to this onerous profession of saving human lives, especially given the context of the ongoing socio-political crisis. The transport buses will facilitate the movement of staff both in times of crisis and in normal times.
Given the present socio-political crisis in the region, Ambulance Hot Lines have been instituted for the public to call for evacuation from difficult zones of the city of Bamenda. Public response to this amenity has been so high that we foresee making of it a permanent component of service to the public, hence the need for more buses.
Following the costing and given that it will be onerous for these projects to be single-handedly carried out by the hospital, its Administration is appealing to individuals and organizations of good will within the national territory and in the Diaspora, as well as government agencies of good will, to choose a project or projects they would love to contribute to and do so via the following bank account: UBA : 10033 05204 04004000088 44
Potential donors are assured of utmost transparency in the management of the funds, execution of the projects and full accountability.
Signatories to the account are the Chairman of the Management Board of the Regional Hospital, the Director of the Regional Hospital and the Service Manager of the Regional Hospital. All records pertaining to the execution of the projects shall be put at the disposal of donors for their appreciation should they deem it necessary and make the request.
It is worth noting that the Government of Cameroon through its Ministry of Public Health and Ministry of Finance has done a lot to see that the population gets quality health care. For example, it is through Government funds that the VIP toilet is being constructed, and the B- , C-, E- and F-Wards were renovated. The Hemodialysis Centre as well as the Imagery Centre remain palpable hallmarks of Government effort in providing quality healthcare to the population of the North West in particular and Cameroon in general.
While hoping for more assistance, the Management Board as well as the hospital’s Administration remain grateful to Government for taking its responsibilities.
