Anaka hospital in Nwoya district will soon have a complete facelift.
This follows the ongoing construction and refurbishment under the Uganda health system strengthening project with funding from World Bank.
The ongoing sh18.65b renovation is part of the sh149.1b World Bank funded project to cover nine hospitals.
The hospital matron, Sr Stella Amude said: “The hospital was dilapidated due to the twenty years of the LRA rebellion. It had no running water that would not allow use of the flush toilets; staff quarters and wards were broken down and with no hospital ambulance.”
Sr Amude said the refurbishment will energize the hospital performance in health service delivery to the community.
The refurbishment has seen construction of a new outpatient department (OPD), renovation works going on in the old OPD, wards, construction of a mortuary, extension of the private wings at the hospital and renovation of staff quarters as well as works on the sewerage and water system.
