Gihundwe Hospital gets new emergency wing

A new emergency ward has been commissioned at Gihundwe Hospital, Rusizi district, raising hopes of quick services to patients requiring immediate medical treatment.

The building cost about Rwf90 million to construct, according to Dr Placide Nshizirungu, the hospital medical director.

It is expected that the renovated and upgraded facility will boost the quality of services for patients in need of immediate medical care at the Rusizi-based hospital, according to officials.

It will be used to provide acute care for patients who report at the hospital without prior appointment, especially as a result of accidents or other life-threatening cases which require immediate attention and initial treatment before the patients is admitted.


“Patients will be getting quick services in a safe, appropriate and clean environment,” Dr Nshizirungu said.

“The facility is big enough to accommodate many patients at once. It is now equipped with 10 beds, but we have enough space where we can install other beds if need be,” he added.

The Rwanda Biomedical Centre Director General, Dr Pierre Claver Kayumba, who officially commissioned the facility, said it is timely and life-saving.

“Such facilities are important for any hospital to provide primary and initial care to patients in critical health situation,” Dr Kayumba said.
