As part of effort to block leakages in managing public funds, the board and management of the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Keffi, has said that it was ready to introduce computerised system of rendering services to patients.
Its Chief Medical Director (CMD), Dr Joshua Giyan, stated this while giving an overview of the activities of the Centre in the past one year at the ongoing FMC’s management retreat in Abuja.
He said no effort would be spared to guarantee efficient health delivery in line with the mandate of the government.
Giyan, whose tenure as CMD had been extended by another four years, however, said the management in its resolve to equip staff with current and requisite knowledge obtainable globally spent over N100 million to send its workforce for extensive training both with the country and beyond.
“Notable amongst is the completion and commissioning of nine functional projects, creation of more units to enhance administrative and service efficiency. 435 staffers were trained, including recruitment of senior and junior staff.”
Earlier, Chairman of the board, Prince Udom Ekpoudom, charged participants at the retreat to be prudent in the use of internally generated revenue.
Also speaking, a former SERVICOM national officer, Mrs Christiana Famro, who is one of the lead speakers, eulogised the management for its visionary leadership.
