Karanda Mission Hospital has emerged as a shining model of best health service delivery and self sustenance which other hospitals should consider emulating to improve their efficiency.
The free cervical and breast cancer screening programme continues to unearth hidden information in the country’s health institutions.
While some institutions were in the lime light for the wrong reasons, Karanda Mission Hospital has proved to be a centre of excellence both in administration and service delivery.
The hospital produces 90 percent of its consumption needs and has a thriving garden which also complements its fish farming project.
The First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa has been advocating for such projects to be adopted by hospitals to assist them in being self sustaining.
Villagers who received the free cancer screening services appealed for more of such community based programmes.
Meanwhile, the First Lady has called on the Ministry of Health and Child Care to consider availing infrastructure and human capital assistance to Karanda Hospital which caters for people from all corners of Zimbabwe with some coming as far as Mozambique and Zambia.
The hospital has four doctors, 49 nurses and has a capacity of 150 patients.
