Levy Mwanawasa Hospital rehab underway


THE Rehabilitation works at the old Levy Mwanawasa Hospital will start soon as the Chinese contractor has started removing the re-mains for the hospital.

Levy Mwanawasa Teaching Hospital Senior medical Superintendent, Parthians Tembo, said the hospital had not com-pletely moved out from the old Levy Mwanawasa Hospital, but that a contractor had started carry out surveys in readiness for the rehabilitation works.
Dr Tembo told Daily Nation in an interview that the contractor has so far brought in the equipment so that works could start.
He, however, could not confirm as to when the contractor would fully move on the ground so that the works on the old hospital could fully commence.
Last week, the hospital management shifted to the new hospital so that the works could commence.
Health Minister, Chitalu Chilufya, said the old Levy Mwanawasa Hospital once rehabilitated would be upgraded to women and new- born hospital.
Dr Chilufya said Government had been implementing hospital modernization programme since 2011 to Old Levy Mwanawasa Hospital order to provide modern and specialized services to the Zambians.
The Minister said the programme focused on three remain areas, namely, infrastructure, human resource development and equipment, within the context of quality of service.
