Mufulira District Hospital ‘on course’

Filed under: Breaking News |

Let me take this opportunity to announce to the nation that the first ultra modern referral Hospital in Mufulira is on course as the contractors building the health institution have moved on site clearing the land.

Mufulira is moving miles ahead in terms of health development because the Hospital once completed it will cater for the rising population of the mining and border town which has only two Hospitals namely Kamuchanga and Ronald Ross respectively.

Am proud to say that my Government is working twenty -four hours a day in order to deliver good health services to the people because a healthy citizenry is meaningful to society.

The District Hospital located in Kamuchanga Township will be constructed by Mercury Lines Limited,  will gobble Thirteen Million Kwacha and it will be completed in March 2016.

The first phase of construction will house the out Patient Department (OPD) the administration block and other  infrastructure needed at a health Institution whilst the second phase will have a  state of   the art Laboratory and a modern operation theatre room.

During the construction stage more than 100 jobs will be created for the local people because the contractor is determined to empower the youths of Mufulira both the skilled and the unskilled ones by engaging them.

For over a period of Fifty years Mufulira has never had a referral Hospital hence  serious health cases were referred to Ndola central Hospital, Kitwe Central Hospital and the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in Lusaka  but now this will be the thing of the past because once the Hospital is in  full operational it will handle critical  health  related issues.

The Hospital will not only serve the residents of Mufulira   it will also cater for the people of the nearby towns such as Chingola, Chililabombwe , Kalulushi,  the Industrious Mining township of Chambishi and the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The PF Government is a working Government ready to bring health services closer to the door steps of the people nationwide.

Health matters are important to the development of Zambia because the foundation of any nation is built on the well being of the health sector which enhances the living standards of the people at all levels.

As the District Commissioner of Mufulira am confident to say that since the PF came into power it has seriously invested in the health sector in all corners of the country because my Government is in a hurry to move Zambia forward.

The project was supposed to kick start after the successful ground breaking ceremony done by the Deputy Health Minister Dr Chitalu Chilufya  in December last year   but the contractor Mercury lines Ltd had sent its workforce on a Christmas break.

The Government is on track building health facilities of international standards in the nation to encourage the health practitioners in Zambia not to go for greener pastures abroad because other people from different countries need to come to our nation to sample our health institutions.

Warm Regards Colleagues, GOD Be with you always and work well.

  1. Motive behind this posting at 11th hour?

  2. Sometimes ignorance is good. Sometimes being uneducated is good. Sometimes not having travelled to other countries to see how other pipo live is good as u will have no basis to compare yourself with. Sometimes being an 1diot is good. Sometimes being dull is good. Sometimes being docile is good. Sometimes having the mentality of a poor person is good. To be honest, before MMD came to power in 1991, I used to think that queuing for bread, mealiemeal, bus to jump onto was normal & was the way of life world over. I was living in a closed society. HOW MANY OF US ARE AWARE OF DEVELOPMENTAL OPPORTUNITIES WE HAVE been MISSING AS A RESULT OF HAVING CORRUPT AND POOR LEADERSHIP? Zambian pipo let us VOTE wisely. Yes, we have been in bondage for too long. TIME IS NOW TO LIBERATE OURSELVES.

  4. DC politiking or paroting! Guy, please save us

  5. Mufulira has three hospitals, Malcom Watson, Ronald Ross and Kamuchanga. What type of DC is this who doesn’t even know his own backyard. The timing is also flawed, they are now just clearing ground and you choose to come out with this a few days before election. Inform us when the project is complete not now.

  8. Besides building health institutions in mufulira i would love if the government would employ at least 2 Bio-medical Technologists to maintain and manage the equipment there. Every time and everyday medical equipment are breaking down and there is almost no one to do maintenance, the government is hiring external contractors to do the work which is cost effective. SAFETY is a major issue to both user of equipment(nurses, doctors, etc) and the patient. Working on unsafe equipment may cause serious adverse events. Therefore it’s one of our duties as Bio-medical Technologists to see to it that medical equipment are in good condition for the benefit of our patients as well as medical personnel. Am doing a diploma program in Bio-medical Engineering at Northern Technical College in Ndola. Am finalizing this year in December and Mufulira is my Homeland. I would like to work with Ronald Rose and Kamuchanga Hospitals just after completing my exams. For any questions, findings, and other things that can interest you email me.
