Jan. 24, 2020
The number of outpatients and inpatients at the Muhimbili National Hospital Mloganzila Campus has increased by an average of 56 per cent, with management attributing it to service satisfaction.
The hospital said the number of outpatients recorded during the first quarter of 2018 was 17,116, but it shot up to 24,945 during the third quarter of last year, which is equivalent to 46 per cent increase, and inpatients increased by 66 per cent.
MNH-Mloganzila Campus Deputy Executive Director, Dr Julieth Magandi revealed that improved services as well as increased human resources at the facility have been attracting more patients.
We have seen a significant increase of patients for surgical services day by day. This is because we have employed more health staff and acquired more modern tools’ she stated.
“Data indicates that the number of patients for surgeries increased by 90 per cent during the third quarter of last year as compared to corresponding period in 2018.
The hospital focuses on being a major facility for specialised operations, as we look forward to introducing new transplant services”, she noted.
She was speaking recently when explaining on achievements recorded by the hospital as the government continues fulfilling its promises made during the 2015 election campaigns.
