The 30th Health Centre of the CBCHS has opened its doors to patients. Nkoabang Baptist Health Center was dedicated on March 1, 2017, bringing the total to three and still counting in Yaounde, after Etougebe and Ekounou.
Dedicating the new health centre, Rev. Dr. Nditemeh Charlemagne, Field Pastor of Yaoundé called on the close to 20 inducted staff, led by the Chief of Center, Mr. Sam Pius to aptly represent the system. He said the Nkoabang Health Centre is a mustard seed that if well catered for, will blossom to the glory of God.
The Chief Medical Officer and Administrator of the Etoug-ebe Baptist Hospital Yaounde, who presided at the ceremony were both visibly happy that this dream has finally come to fruition. The two officials appreciated everyone who contributed to its success in one way or the other. The new staff were encouraged to brighten the corner of Nkoabang as part of the CBCHS.
Speaking on behalf of his staffing team, the chief of centre, Mr. Sam Pius promised to do their very best in providing health care to all who need it. He promised to uphold the standards of the CBCHS even in Nkoabang.
Anxious patients started coming in early that morning and were attended to. Speaking to the first client, an elderly woman in her seventies, she said, “I had come before but was told to return on this day when consultations would begin. I live in the neighbourhood and came by myself because I sensed that just from the preparations, these people look serious.”
It should be noted that services began with general consultations and all that come with it. The maternity, eye and other specialised services will commence before long.
