Bulawayo is set to have another hospital to ease pressure on Mpilo Central and United Bulawayo Hospitals.
Bulawayo Provincial Affairs Minister Judith Ncube said the hospital will be in Luveve suburb and offer primary health care. She declined to give a date for commencement of construction work. She said some logistics have to be put in place first. Ncube said consultations were underway with potential land developers to map the way forward. Said Ncube:
We want to engage stakeholders including residents who should give an input to what exactly they want from the hospital. We need another hospital to help decongest Mpilo and UBH which are currently tackling minor health issues. Ideally these two hospitals are meant to cater for conditions that need specialists for five provinces.
