J.F. Doe Hospital To Get Advance Medical Technology

By Wilfred Gortor, LINA

MONROVIA, March 17 (LINA) - The Jackson F. Doe Memorial Regional Referral Hospital in Tappita, Nimba County has disclosed that the hospital will soon install a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) device to upgrade operations at the facility.

An MRI is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to investigate the anatomy and physiology of the body in both health and disease. It utilizes strong magnetic fields and radio waves to form images of the body.

Dr. Francis Kateh, Medical Director, also said that the hospital’s Computer Technology scan (CT scan) device is currently undergoing routine maintenance, and did not break down as has been speculated by the public.

Making the disclosure at the Ministry of Information daily Ebola press briefing at the Ministry in Monrovia on Tuesday, Kateh said the MRI device will improve the operations of the hospital as well as give people the opportunity to seek quality and safe medication.

He disclosed that a ceremony to dedicate a staff quarter, which was recently built, as well as a ceremony to construct a building to house the HRT device will be simultaneously held on April 18 this year.

Kateh said the hospital did not shut its doors to patients during the Ebola outbreak, something he attributed to the robust preventive surveillance system that was instituted at the peak of the health crisis.

He then urged Liberians to remain steadfast as the country races to reach the end of the health crisis, adding that “Even when Liberia is declared Ebola free we must celebrate with caution until the entire region is declared free of the virus.”
