With this movement, the Vision of making NAUTH rank among the 5 top Teaching Hospitals in the country has taken its root and will be pursued with vigour.
I want to thank members of the Medicine department for taking the bull by the horn to ensure that we kick start this process of moving to the permanent site.
I also thank all our stakeholders who have assisted us so far in our efforts to move to the new site and also call on others to partner with us in improving the hospital through the provision of the necessary infrastructure and equipment.
We have the manpower who are trained and well disposed to deliver quality services but we need the requisite infrastructure and equipment to make it happen.” The CMAC stressed.
