Gombe Governor Boosts Healthcare with New Dialysis Machines

Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, has provided additional dialysis machines and related consumables to the Gombe State Specialist Hospital. This move aims to reduce morbidity and mortality rates associated with acute and chronic renal failure, which often require regular dialysis.

According to Commissioner of Health, Dr. Habu Dahiru, the decision to enhance dialysis facilities was in response to numerous complaints from patients who had to travel to neighboring states for dialysis treatment.

The new machines and improved medical support are expected to provide relief and convenience to these patients.

This development is part of a broader effort by the Gombe State Government to upgrade healthcare services and infrastructure, ensuring residents have access to quality medical care within the state.

The addition of new dialysis machines will benefit patients with kidney-related ailments, reducing the strain on existing facilities and improving overall health outcomes in Gombe State.

To ensure the effective operation of the new dialysis units, the Gombe State Government has signed an MoU with the Federal Teaching Hospital (FTH) Gombe to bring in additional manpower, including consultant nephrologists and biomedical engineers. This integration of expertise from FTH will improve the quality of care and ensure the sustainability of dialysis services.
