JFK faces setback?

A Liberian medical doctor, Jerry Brown says there is deficiency of professional and qualified medical doctors and nurses at the government – owned John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFKMC) in Sinkor, alarming that it is allegedly creating a serious setback to the operations of the hospital.

The Chief Medical Officer at the ELWA Hospital, Doctor Brown made the disclosure on 3 February when he turned over to the head of the hospital’s transitional team several assorted medical materials donated by Liberian First Lady Mrs. Clar Weah.

Doctor Brown emphasizes the need for government to support the hospital by all means to ensure that the hospital provides the services expected. He says he believes that attracting qualified doctors and nurses to work at the hospital would reduce the difficulty that the hospital is faced with in terms of the alleged shortage of doctors and nurses.

Speaking earlier during the donation, Liberian First Lady Mrs. Clar Weah assured the transitional team of the John F. Kennedy Medical Center of her preparedness to effectively work with them in moving the operations of the hospital forward.

Mrs. Weah says government will continue to seek every assistance aimed at improving the health conditions of citizens, most of whom do not have the means of paying for services rendered to them.

She admonished the workforce at the hospital to remain committed and dedicated to saving the lives of their compatriots. The medical items donated by First Lady Mrs. Clar Weah include wheelchairs, hospital beds, and medical gloves, among others.

A similar donation was also made to the Redemption Hospital in the Municipal Borough of New Kru Town the same day by Mrs. Weah.
