The FETHI CMD further explained that the inability of some patients to pay hospital bills after treatment prompted the indigent initiatives, where staff, members of the public, and philanthropists, pulled resources together to offset the medical bills of such patients.

While speaking about onward initiative, the CMD maintained that eminent personalities visited the hospital and built wards and they maintained them for efficient service delivery.

On infrastructure development, the CMD revealed that people donated equipment, buildings and materials for the hospital use, while the management and staff were trained and retrained for excellent performances in their various fields for capacity building.

He lauded the versatility of the online media platforms and expressed the readiness of the hospital to partner with the chapel. He advised them not to be biased in the dissemination of news stories, especially the negative ones, and to always confirm news authenticity.

“We are here to look into the areas of partnership. The Online platform is fast, compared to electronic and print. You can share your news using various social media platforms and everybody will read the news anywhere in the world.”
