Lodged at the Imagery Centre of the hospital, the new CT scan machine will help medical Doctors to better understand the internal problems of their patients before proceeding to treating them.

The breakdown of the old machine made work very difficult as scans moved from 599 in 2019 to zero in 2021. Since the installation of the new machine on the 16th January 2022, 207 scans have already been done.

Health Personnel gather to welcome the Minister 

The wonderful contribution of the Minister of Public Health was saluted both by the 2nd Deputy City Mayor of Bamenda, Lucas Ngu Afung and the Director of the Bamenda Regional Hospital, Dr Nsame Denis.

They both appreciated the city council for the donation of a Standby generator to curb the electricity deficiency in the hospital, the acquisition of a brand new ambulance as well as the renovation of wards.

Speaking to the Health family, Public Health Minister congratulated them for putting up a tough fight against COVID-19. "Thank you for not giving up. Thank you for fighting like soldiers."
