Beitbridge hospital set for upgrade

Government has given the go ahead to the upgrading of Beitbridge hospital, given the huge volumes of traffic passing through the border town.

Between 13 000 to 30 000 people pass through the Beitbridge border post daily, hence the need for the local hospital to provide standard health care services.


The Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr Obediah Moyo who was in the border town on Friday revealed that government will dispatch a team for feasibility studies to get the project underway.


Government’s commitment to the project follows an appeal by the minister of state for Matabeleland South provincial affairs, Cde Abednico Ncube who spoke on the importance of upgrading the health facility.
