A new rescue plan is promised to be a key to solve the Kimberley’s Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe Hospital internal issues and, especially, to deal with overcrowding and a lack of space in the facility. The clinic in the Northen Cape has been operating with serious delays for years.
As a part of the plan, Alistair Kantani has been appointed to the hospital interim CEO position and will further help the management by addressing the direct operational problems to them.
“The MEC today managed to appoint an interim CEO who is going to ensure there is stability of the facility and will be able to look into aspects of concern as raised by the public and stakeholders,” provincial Health Department spokesperson Lebogang Majaha said.
Moreover, some patients will be transported to the Galeshewe Day Hospital, reducing the Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe Hospital’s load.
