Minister Says US$181m Needed To Revamp JFK Hospital
By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, October 12 (LINA) – An estimated US$181 million is needed to restore the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital (JFK) in Monrovia to its pre-war status, Health Minister Dr. Bernice Dahn disclosed Monday.

According to Minister Dahn, prior to the war, the hospital had adequate professional doctors, nurses, medical equipment and drugs and could be compared to any international medical center.

Dahn made the disclosure at a stakeholders’ validation workshop of the JFK Medical Center 2015-2020 Strategic Plan held at a local hotel in Sinkor, Monrovia.

She stated that investing in the JFK will go a long way in providing quality medical services and preventing government officials and other citizens from spending huge sums of money to go abroad for medical attention.

She indicated that the money will be invested in equipment and training of doctors and nurses as well as physicians up to post-graduate level in conformity with international medical professional standards.

She added that if government and international partners invest in improving the standard of JFK, it will provide quality health services which once made the facility a referral hospital in the sub-region.

Meanwhile, Minister Dahn is urging Liberians to prioritize their health needs as they are critical to the socio-economic development of the nation, adding, “a healthy people build a vibrant nation.”
