The KHMH Authority says that refurbishment and upgrading of the Operating Theater suites may pose a delay of service to many patients awaiting elective procedures. In a press statement, the Authority said that the works have now reached its most critical point. The statement adds that there will be a continued performance of Emergency cases and Caesarian Sections and the period of this heightened activity has been effective since January 1 and run until March. The labor ward has been temporarily converted into operating rooms. At the completion of this project, the KHMH will have four state of the art Operating Theaters with the possibility of a fifth being added.
