Bor State Hospital is under renovation
Bor State Hospital, the main referral facility in Jonglei State is being renovated.
Speaking to Radio Tamazuj, Dr. Bol Chaw Manyang, the hospital’s managing director, said the ongoing renovation will run for a month, and that access to healthcare services will be boosted when the works are done.
“UNMISS is one of the partners which has been supporting the hospital. They constructed a new OPD ward and donated an ambulance. Right now, they are renovating the surgical ward, operation theatre, and then they are paving the road from the gate to the OPD, and renovation is done on X-ray building,” he said.
Dr. Bol pointed out that the renovated facilities will help doctors provide the much-needed health services to the locals efficiently and effectively.
One Bor resident, Adut Deng, welcomed the new development, “I always seek diagnosis there though sometimes they lack drugs. With the renovation, I think doctors will be able to provide good services and it will also attract the residents,” she said.
