A Liberian humanitarian family under the auspices of the PAN Health Services has broken grounds for the construction of a major referral hospital in Brewerville city, Montserrado County.
Mr. & Mrs. Cristo N. Kiepea, a Liberian couple residing in the State of Maryland, United States of America, secured six acres of land for the project immediately after the civil crises.
According to them, they are now set to construct a modern health care center here, which will cater to patients with all categories of illness, including teenage mothers. The couple notes that the facility will offer services to teenage mothers and pregnant women free of charge.
In brief remark at the launch on Tuesday, 6 June 6 in Parker Corner, (G-4 Road), Brewerville City, Mr. Kiepea explains noted that besides treating sick people, the hospital will also establish a data base for patients that visit hospitals across the country.
“This facility will not be in competition with other hospitals, but will complement the works of hospitals in providing patients’ records to enable medical doctors to access the medical history of their patients online for easy treatment,” he says.
He notes that the project is a humanitarian gesture for the Liberian people, which he and his wife conceived to build in Liberia as they prepare to return home.The program was attended by cross section of residents of Brewerville City, including City Mayor George Curtis.
When asked how he intends to get trained doctors, nurses and staff, Mr. Keipea continues that most of the workers will be recruited in Liberia and trained in specialized areas.
The Chief Executive and Founder of the PAN Family Health Services, explains that he earned his Bachelor degree from the University of Liberia in Accounting, and a Master’s in Information Technology in the U.S.A. He is also a holder of Baccalaureate Certificate in Information Security and Assurance and Biomedical information or medical informatics. Mrs. Kiepea is also a professional Nurse with extensive experience from the United States.
Mr. Kiepea says he and his wife started saving for the project in 2003, adding that he is confident that the project will be completed by February 2018 for dedication. Brewerville City Mayor Curtis, the only government official, who attended the ceremony, expressed thanks to the couple for selecting the township for the project, which will also serve Bomi and Cape Mount Counties. “I will do everything possible to ensure that this hospital is built,” Mayor Curtis vows. Meanwhile, the Liberian humanitarian is appealing to the government to cut down on customs duties levied on items imported to the country that are meant to carry on developmental projects.
