Bong County Superintendent Esther Walker has called on critics to disengage from criticizing both the Phebe and C. B. Dunbar hospitals in the county if they have nothing positive to offer in enhancing the works of the two hospitals.
Superintendent Walker said over the years, some citizens in the county have been spewing mere criticisms against the two hospitals despite the crucial roles these medical institutions are playing in meeting the medical needs of citizens and residents.
Sitting and criticizing the works of Phebe and C. B. Dunbar hospitals without helping the institutions to improve their operations is inappropriate, she pointed out.
“Bongese,” (citizens of Bong County) “we need to pay more attention to health workers in this county and the country at large because these health workers treat everyone without any discrimination,” she added.
The Bong County Superintendent assured the administrations of both hospitals of the county administration’s support.
The Bong County Superintendent stated that with the support of the County’s Legislative Caucus and other local officials in the County, the two hospitals will benefit from the County Administration.
“To be a medical doctor is not a crime, it is a worthy service that you volunteer for, and you labor to serve your people,” she pointed out.
“Doctors around the World are paid millions of dollars but it is not the same in Liberia, but we sit and criticize them. This is unacceptable, ” she emphasized. This administration, headed by President George Manneh Weah, is not here to castigate anyone or group, but to serve our people to improve their lives,” she added.
Madam Esther Walker also stressed the need for support to be given to the Phebe Para-medical school and other health institutions in the country.
She said this will enable them to contribute more to the development of the Liberian nation and in enhancing the implementation of the government pro-poor agenda for prosperity.
Superintendent made the statement at Phebe Hospital School of Nursing with support from Sights Savers-Liberia in collaboration with the Ministry of Health when they celebrated the World Sight Day in Gbarnga, Bong County.
The Bong County Superintendent served as a Keynote Speaker for the occasion.
