Will the KHMH Finally Get a New CT Scan?
The Ministry of Health and Wellness is looking to procure a CT Scan machine for the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH). Health Minister, Kevin Bernard, explains that his ministry is currently undergoing the tendering process to find a suitable machine that will be available to the public at the national referral hospital. Minister Bernard says the ministry recognizes the need for a CT Scan machine to be available at a public health facility for the sake of people who cannot afford to pay for the service at private hospitals. He adds that they are working closely with Taiwan to acquire other essential imaging equipment.
Hon. Kevin Bernard, Minister of Health and Wellness: “We are in the process. In fact we have already gone through most of the process that requires for us to be able to get that CT Scan. I don’t want to put a timeline but I can guarantee you that it will be delivered, we will make sure that that CT Scan comes to KHMH. But let me also add this through the efforts of my CEO we have been lobbying with a group in Taiwan and we are at the stage where we are almost – in fact I can nearly say that we have confirmed even the support of a donation of an MRI machine for KHMH that is even greater news. But we are like I said we have gone through the process and we’re finalizing those stages that have to happen but definitely KHMH will get that CT scanner.”
