Imo Government received the report of visitation panel of the Imo State University Teaching Hospital (IMSUTH)
The content of the report raises concern over the state of the Imo State University Teaching Hospital.
It raises a serious cause for concern that if the Imo State University Teaching Hospital (IMSUTH), Orlu is sick, then the entire health sector of the state is in trouble.
Gov. Uzodimma thanks the members of Chairman of the Visitation Panel led by Prof. Frank Akpuaka for a job well done, certain that the recommendation will help in improving the rot in the health sector.
Worrisome also, is that all critical sectors of the state are sick, ranging from the Civil Service, power sector and several other sectors.
IMSUTH is an institution that is positioned to be self-sustaining and provide effective healthcare services to the entire state and beyond if properly managed, especially in the area of germane drug procurement for Imolites.
Gov. Uzodimma pledges to change the ugly narrative in the financial statements of the hospital by making sure that all financial leakages are plugged by streamlining IMSUTH into the Treasury Single Account (TSA) system already in operation by his administration.
It is also regrettable, the non accreditation of the College of Medicine since inception. This is attributable to sheer negligence by the past School Administrations and past governments. It will no longer be business as usual for contractors and individuals who take advantage of the administrative lapses in the institution to set back the wheel of progress of the hospital.
