“Do your work with diligence and bring good results. Give a smile to the patients and treat them with respect and humility because a good smile is the starting point of healing,” she said.

Dr. Emmanuel Odeke, the Bukedea District Health Officer says that the new health facility will boost health service delivery in the district, especially with the free maternity services.

He noted that while there are government health facilities across the district, they are sometimes hit by drug stockouts and personnel who may be overwhelmed by a high number of patients.

Information in Bukedea indicates that the Speaker’s Hospital will be officially commissioned at a later stage after opening doors to patients on Monday. The facility is equipped with an emergency unit, laboratory, X-ray, theatre, maternity ward, and general ward.
