U/E Regional Hospital Anticipates Operationalization Of Dialysis Centre

Officials of the  Regional Hospital of the Upper East Region are expecting to receive consumables to commence the operations of the dialysis centre.

A Physician Specialist, Dr. Emmanuel Akatibo disclosed that the hospital has completed processing for purchasing the consumables and are only expecting the arrival of the items.
All things being equal, he revealed, the facility will be operational before the end of March 2024.
“They have already done the awarding. We are just waiting for the consumables to be delivered to us. Two days ago, I interacted with the administrator. I actually didn’t get to know exactly when the timeline for delivery is, but he told me that we should expect them within probably two weeks or three weeks, we should be able to get it,” he stated.
“Then we can start with what we have. If we get the consumables, it shouldn’t take us more than a week for the operationalization in March. Let’s say second week of March, we should be able to start operating this centre”.
In March 2023, a campaign was launched to solicit funds from members of the public to aid in the establishment of a dialysis centre in the Upper East Regional Hospital. This saw members of the public generously donating to have the centre set up.
He explained that the centre will be put to use before the official inauguration once the items arrive in the region.
“Initially, we planned that when we are going to start it we invite the stakeholders who supported to do this. But unfortunately, we don’t want to leave some stakeholders out. So we decided that we will start operating then when everything is complete, we can now do a formal launch so that everyone who was involved in it can be acknowledged”.
