The General Supervisor and Coordinator for laboratory training in the CBC Health Services, Mr. Tancho Samuel Ngwa says he will no longer function in this capacity following the appointment by the Director of Health Services (DHS), Prof. Tih Pius Muffih of Mr. Fuh Anoed and Mrs. Tanayen Grace as CBCHS Laboratory Supervisor and Coordinator for Training respectively.
Speaking in Kumba Baptist Hospital Chapel on Monday, August 20, 2022 during his handing over tour, Mr. Tancho Samuel remarked that over the years the CBCHS Laboratory has grown in capacity, scope of testing and renowned services in Cameroon and beyond. He announced the appointment of Mr. Fuh Anoed, the Head of Department (HOD) for Mbingo Baptist Hospital (MBH) lab and Mrs. Tanayen Grace, the HOD for Banso Baptist Hospital (BBH) lab as supervisors for laboratory services and training respectively. The Veteran Lab scientist noted that should he next visit the hospital, it will be in a different capacity and not as a lab supervisor. He, however, challenged the lab staff and all the stakeholders not to destroy what they have built over the years and promised to always be around to assist where ever and whenever necessary.
Responding to Mr. Tancho Samuel, the Assistant Administrator of Kumba Baptist Hospital, Mr. Yungseh Peter Nshiom thanked the Veteran lab supervisor for the special love and concern he had for Kumba Baptist Hospital especially in the domain of laboratory equipment and staffing. Mr. Yungseh Peter expressed his wish that the new coming supervisors will follow the footsteps of Mr. Tancho Samuel so as to take the CBCHS lab to higher heights. “For sure, Mr. Tancho Samuel remains our Senator,” the Administrator noted while remarking that applause for Mr. Tancho Samuel was not for his departure but for hard work he has put over the years to carry CBCHS laboratory to where it is today.
In a brief meeting with the lab staff, Mr. Fuh Anoed noted that he is on practical experience as he moves round with Mr. Tancho Samuel Ngwa during the handing over tour and promised to be back when he eventually settles.
Mr. Fuh Anoed now has a huge challenge ahead of him; sourcing and making laboratory equipment and reagents readily available for Kumba Baptist Hospital lab to stop the mass exodus of Kumba Baptist Hospital patients to other laboratories in town and ensuring steady increase in capacity building of staff through regular internal trainings for staff upgrade and betterment of services.
