By BBN Staff: CEO of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH), Dr. Adrian Coye, explained today that the hospital will only be delaying non-emergency surgeries for 3-4 weeks while the operating theaters are being renovated.
Coye explained that the hospital is making massive infrastructure investments to improve the quality of the services of the hospital; however, the services will undergo a series of interruptions over the year the operating theaters are being renovated.
“The level of investment we are making will cost almost $2 million,” Coye said today. “We’re not just improving the equipment, but the systems we use as well.”
The KHMH has four operating theaters that will be closed down one at a time during the renovation period. The rooms will be outfitted with new lights, gas lines, floors, walls, ceilings, and surgical equipment.
The KHMH carries out an average of 300 surgeries a month, with the operating theaters open 24-hours a day.
