FCTA New Era of Expansion:  Multiple Facilities Commissioned to Improve Health Care Delivery

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) through Health Services and Environment Secretariat (HSES) has commissioned multiple facilities to improve Health Care Delivery.

An oxygen plant was commissioned by the Mandate Secretary HSES Dr Adedolapo Fasawe during her familiarization visit to the fourteen (14) FCTA Hospitals recently.

Fasawe while commissioning the Oxygen plant said that oxygen is an essential medicine used to care for patients at all levels of healthcare system including surgery, trauma, heart attack, asthma, pneumonia, maternal and child care.

In the same vain, the Mandate Secretary also commissioned a Medical Out Patient Department (MOPD) and a Library Unit in Wuse District Hospital. The projects according to Fasawe is collaboration between FCTA and German Embassy.

The Mandate Secretary who embarked on familiarization visit to all the hospitals spread across the six (6) Area Councils of the FCT to access the quality of services rendered in the hospitals, staff capacity and infrastructure and other challenges in order to improve on them.

Fasawe said that the FCT Administration under the leadership of Barrister Nyesom Wike is making tremendous efforts which is evident in the renovation of Call Rooms in some of the hospitals which is ongoing with several others on the queue.

Again, the Mandate Secretary also reiterated the commitment of the FCT Administration to reduce Maternal and Infant Mortality in the FCT and directed FCT Health Insurance Scheme (FHIS) to enroll all pregnant women who has register for Antenatal in any FCTA Health facility for free.

The free enrollment of pregnant women into FHIS will run through the year 2024 because enrolling into a Health Insurance Scheme will subsidize the cost of accessing health care services and ensures that emergencies are handled promptly to avoid complications in pregnant women Fasawe noted.

Furthermore, the Mandate Secretary mentioned that the Health Sector in FCT will experience some reforms that will improve Health Care Services like introducing Revenue Collection System in all FCTA Hospitals in order ease stress on patients during payment.

Also, Fasawe said that plans were underway to introduce solar powering system in hospitals which will address the cost of running generators and reduce burning fossil fuels which is harmful to our environment and the money will be channeled to better use in other areas.

While responding to complaints on some of the challenges affecting some services in the some hospitals, the Mandate Secretary promised to treat the challenges as urgent like manpower shortage due to the mass exist of health workers seeking greener pastures which is not peculiar to FCT alone.
