The Ministry of Health has said it will use Shs26b to renovate and introduce an emergency unit at Busolwe General hospital in Buteleja District.

This comes a year after residents and local leaders protested the government’s failure to repair the facility, which they say has been in a poor state for the past 35 years.

Dr Diana Atwine, the ministry’s Permanent Secretary, says the renovation and expansion will improve the quality of healthcare at the facility and increase the scope of services provided adding that the hospital is expected to be completed in two years.

Busolwe Hospital has a bed capacity of 100, but the Health ministry said the introduction of emergency centre will increase the number.
