KIRAKIRA Hospital, Makira-Ulawa, will resume full services soon, authorities there say.
The hospital’s operation was suspended June this year due to water shortage and lack of space to dump hospital wastes.
Health Director Dr Arnold Nguduamae said all services will resume as soon as the installation of the incinerator was done.
He said the incinerator was built on land they recently identified.
“We together with the provincial government consulted the land owners and have agreed to give us a temporary dump site to build an incinerator where its construction was currently underway and soon to complete,” Dr Nguduamae said.
“For the water shortages problem, we have identified one source and land owners agreed and allow it for hospital use.
“No documents were signed yet, but they allow for assessment and the water will supply on the hospital.
“Assessment was carried out by the Government’s Environmental Health Director with his inspector.
“All we are waiting for now are materials to build the water supply,” he said.
“The hospital will resume full services as soon as we complete the installation of the incinerator, tested it and we will meet to see how we can go about it.”
