Deiyai, Jubi – Despite a shortage of medical personnel and facilities, Pratama Hospital in Deiyai regency has started to operate and serve patients, its director, Yaruarius, said.
“We’ve been serving patients since last Monday. Thank God, there was no patient hospitalized so far “ Yanuarius said on Thursday ( 9/10). He said that the hospital will open 24 hours to provide medical services to the public.
“We don’t have enough medical personnel and equipment. Currently, there are 135 medical personnel ” he added.
The Deiyai regent, in a speech read out by the head of Public Relations Daniel Bunai, said he appreciated the hospital management’s effort and hope that it would provide good medical services for the community.
“Yes, Deiyai topography is very challenging and becomes an obstacle for the government to serve the community in various fields especially in the public health services,” he said.
“Hopefully in the future, medical personnel, construction of buildings and equipment can be completed as funds are available. However, the most important thing is our service to the people in the area,” he said. (Ones Madai/Tina)
