Mbarara Regional Hospital launches construction site for UGX 800m oxygen plant

Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital has launched the construction site where a new oxygen plant will be housed.

The construction project is financed by the Ministry of Health in conjunction with global health collaborative and will cost over UGX 800million.

Francis Ojom, the Mbarara referral hospital senior administrator said the new Oxygen plant will enable the hospital to have enough oxygen.

Currently, the two oxygen plants at the hospital have the capacity to produce over 21,000 litres of oxygen per hour but the new plant will be producing 28.3 m3 (cubic centimeters) higher than two plants already in place.

Halson Kagure, the Mbarara Referral Hospital Public Relations Officer says that at the peak of Covid-19 pandemic the hospital would get oxygen cylinders from private services providers yet Mbarara Referral Hospital has been supplying other hospitals in the region.

Kagure revealed that once this new plant is completed, the facility will be equipped with huge stocks of oxygen that is still needed most in treatment of infectious diseases.

Anton Muganzi, the coordinator clinical activities between Mbarara Referral Hospital and Global Health collaborative applauded the ministry of Health and Global Health Collaborative for rooting for good health services at the facility.
