Hello World, this is AFCC LabMed Internet Radio- ZACB Flash News. The 1st of July 2019 was a historic day when Professor Hilda Tendisa Marima-Matarira was appointed as the Board Chairman of Chitungwiza Central Hospital (CCH), the only ISO certified central hospital out of 5 such hospitals in Zimbabwe.
CCH is one of the five Central Hospital in Zimbabwe situated 30km south east of Harare. It looks after 3 million population from part of Manicaland Province to Mashonaland East Province.
In Mashonaland East Province, there are other hospitals under CCH. These are Marondera Provincial Hospital and Mahusekwa District hospitals plus many clinics. In Chitungwisa Central Business District (CBD), there are 4 clinics. These are St Marys, Zengeza, Seke North and Seke South. The central business district has some 400 000 plus population.
Chitungwiza Central Hospital delivers the highest number of babies in Zimbabwe per month @ 600 babies, but it has no maternity hospital. Top on the list of priorities of Prof. Matarira is to build via Private Public Partnership (PPP) a super special maternity hospital.
CCH sets on 17 Ha and 5 Ha of which has already been built. On the 12 Ha site plans to build a super specialities hospital are approved and now available. It will be a centre of excellence as a national supra referral hospital that will also attract Medical Tourism facilities in SADC and beyond. The hospital will have 7 floors, an additional 500 beds in addition to the current 500 beds. There are
about 100 Doctors, 550 Nurses plus 200 others are working in Chitungwiza Central Hospital.
We expect that the hospital will maintain an ISO certified status very soon. All these structures will also include 600 000 litre water tank solarisations of CCH and provision of 5 ambulances.
