Description : Shagofa said. "When we are receiving new patients, and I get to help them, is the best part of the work. I am very happy with the new ward, but looking forward and with all the patients, we need more equipment and space, as we are already over-capacity".
Opened on September 6, 2016, the new ward provides more beds (157), more equipment and more staff compared to the old ward (93 beds).
