This was revealed this morning during a short presentation and demonstration of a Video Endoscopic system machine by a specialized Lae based Doctor Simon Kassa.
According to the Chief Executive Officer for the Buka General Hospital Dr. Cyril Imako, Buka is the only second Hospital in the country who has that specialized equipment.
In receiving the hospital equipment, both the Hospital CEO and his Director Medical Services thanked the Regional Member Hon Joe Lera for listening to their request and for purchasing yet another piece of very specific equipment for the people of Buka.
According to Hon Joe Lera’s office the Regional Member is now looking at purchasing a kidney Dialysis and an Aco Heart machine for the Buka general Hospital so that our people may not have to travel to Port ,Moresby or overseas for seeking treatment we can perform locally.
Once we are fully equipped, patients from other Provinces and possibly overseas will come to us and when they come they can pay for our services and by doing so we can generate our own funds to manage and keep this specialized equipment operational.
