The machine was presented to the hospital’s management by Eng Onesmo Haule who installed at the hospital’s X-Ray unit and issued instructions on how best to operate it.
Receiving the equipment, the hospital’s senior medical officer Dr Gloria Mbwile thanked the government, saying the current machine was very old and did not work properly as expected.
He said the new machine will assist to beef up health services in the hospital.
She said: “We will ensure we take care of the machine by servicing it from time to time so that it lasts long and I appeal to the staff at the X-Ray unit to offer better services to patients.”
Dr Gloria said the machine will now embrace the digital system.
Presenting the machine on behalf of the Health ministry, Eng Haule called upon the hospital’s to maintain it so that it lasts longer.
Without mentioning the machine’s real cost, Eng Haule said it is among the very expensive equipment hence when it breaks down a lot of money is needed for repair.
