Chitungwiza General Hospital chief executive officer Dr Obadiah Moyo said the development is expected to speed up the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.

 

Dr Moyo said the laboratory plays a crucial role at any hospital and the new state of the art equipment will help patients who in the past were taking their blood samples to private laboratories.

 

“We have acquired new state of the art equipment that include heart tests, kidney function, full blood count and chemistry analysers. The laboratory plays a very important role in the treatment of diseases and we are happy with the development, “added Dr Moyo.

 

The installation of the state of the art equipment at the hospital was a result of the public Private Partnership. The health sector has been  severely affected by illegal sanctions that were imposed on the country by western countries and government has since last year been on a drive to revamp the sector.
