Maintain hospital facilities — CEO

Source: Highlands Post, Post Courier, February 15, 2012
The chief executive officer of Wabag General Hospital Salan Eri has questioned the logic in Enga Governor Peter Ipatas’ push for the construction of a new provincial hospital.
While Governor Ipatas is speeding up ground works and land payment for the hospital, the man responsible for the existing hospital is not happy and opposes the whole idea of a new hospital.
The Enga Provincial Government last week made a payment of K8.9million to landowners for the acquisition of the land on which the new hospital would stand.
Mr Eri has so far written two letters to Governor Ipatas, Enga Provincial Administration, Health Secretary and National Planning, opposing the idea of a new hospital and called for refurbishment of the existing hospital. His calls have fallen on deaf ears.
“Why is the Governor so adamant on a new hospital when all existing facilities in the province are totally run down? If we really care for the health of the Enga people, we should maintain and upkeep the existing facilities.” Mr Eri said
