By Prince Nagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, April 28 (LINA) – Major public and private health facilities, including hospitals and clinics, have reopened across the country as the Ebola virus disease gradually fades away.

The John F. Kennedy Medical Center, Redemption Hospital and the James Davies Memorial Hospital in Montserrado County are among some of the major health facilities that have resumed normal operations with state-of-the-act equipment.

The government has opened the Maternity and Pediatric wards of JFK and Redemption Hospitals, while the JFK has also reopened its wards for admission of medical, pediatric, obstetric and surgical cases, according to Assistant Health Minister for Curative Services, Dr. Saye Dahn Baawo.

Addressing the Ministry of Information regular press briefing in Monrovia Tuesday, Dr. Baawo disclosed that plans are also underway to construct permanent structures at all health facilities which will be used as both triage and holding centers for patients.

Baawo revealed that the Ministry of Health has also procured communication devices to be installed in emergency rooms of major hospitals to improve communication and referral links between the National Dispatch Center and various health facilities.

At the same time, Dr. Baawo has disclosed that 19 Land Cruiser ambulances have been donated to the Ministry of Health by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) for distribution to hospitals across the 15 counties.

Dr. Baawo also pointed out that the government has deployed 10 experienced Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) professional nurses at Benson, Pipeline, Mawah and Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) hospitals to mentor other health workers.

In another development, Dr. Baawo has disclosed that the government has completed the payment of 8,162 non-ETU health workers assigned at public health facilities their hazard pay for the month of September 2014, while 1,387 non-ETU workers from public health facilities are being paid for the months of October, November and December.
