Luau Hospital expected to reopen in April

The reopening of Luau Hospital, in Moxico, could happen in April. The announcement was made by the Minister of Health, Sílvia Lutucuta, this Wednesday.


According to the Health minister, quoted by Angop, the hospital – target of requalification and enlargement to a capacity of 108 beds and whose works present a physical execution in the order of 97 percent, as well as 73 percent of equipping – will also serve as a school for training professionals in various areas, especially family medicine.

Sílvia Lutucuta also referred that a fraction of the 8000 professionals entered a short time ago in the public tender will be able to guarantee the operation of the hospital.

Cited by Angop, she also took the opportunity to point out that ten residences were built, which will bring greater comfort to health professionals.

The hospital, writes Angop, will have 42 rooms for medicine, 30 for paediatrics, 21 for emergency, 15 for maternity and 12 doctors' offices. Among the unit's valences are also three laboratories (for biochemical and blood analyses, among other quick tests), three screening compartments, morgue, six waiting rooms, among others.

Valued at 3,955,746,000 kwanzas, the hospital – installed in a perimeter of more than 25 thousand square meters – is part of the Integrated Program for Intervention in Municipalities (PIIM).

It is recalled that the requalification of the hospital came about as a result of the destruction of the previous unit – with a capacity of 40 beds – due to rains and strong winds in October 2020, forcing, according to Angop, the patients to be transferred to a school where the minimum conditions were generated.
