- The currently maternity block Vs the new one
The current Maternity Block of the facility is the oldest existing structure of the hospital. Over the years of its existence, it has served the facility and the community very well however its current capacity is overstretched as a result of the ever-increasing number of pregnant women and babies seen at the unit.
In the current set up of the current block, obstetrics and gynecological patients are distributed as follows: The pregnant women are admitted to the maternity block, whiles those who present in early pregnancy
with complications are first admitted to the (Accident & Emergency) unit before being admitted to the surgical ward or the maternity block.
All the Gynaecological cases are admitted to the surgical ward. The current maternity block has 35 beds (including those on the corridors) and 5 delivery beds making a total of 40 beds. The surgical
ward (35 bed capacity) currently accommodates Gynaecological cases as well as general surgical patients.
