C.B. Dunbar Yearns For Doctors

By Ballah  Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, JUNE 8, (LINA) - The acting Medical Director of the C.B. Dumbar Hospital in Gbarnga, Bong County, is calling for an increase in the number of medical doctors and health workers at the maternity facility.

According to Doctor John Doddeh, the hospital records have reported an increase in the number of patients from over 20,000 in 2012 to more than 23,500 patients in 2013, while the current record stands at 25,450 despite 2014 being at mid-year.

The increase, he said, justifies why Health Ministry officials must augment the strength of the three doctors and health workers assigned to the hospital.

Doddeh stressed the need for timely disbursement of salaries coupled with an increment in incentives to health workers, as well as the supply of drugs, stationery and a mini bus for workers of the hospital.

Speaking to journalists Saturday at the launch of a program to build an outside latrine facility by a women’s group, Dr. Doddeh noted that there was also the lack of space as the hospital receives more cases from parts of Nimba, Lofa and Margibi counties.

The hospital has 69 beds and OPD and IPD wards, while also serving as a training center for internship students in the medical field.

During the program, the hospital contributed L$10,000, while Dr. Doddeh made a personal contribution of US$50 to the project.
