By Hassan Muhammad
In its quest to see that the healthcare of people in the state has not been jeopardized by the current situation of Covid-19 pandemic, especially patients with urinary diseases, Kano State Hospitals Management Board has temporarily transferred the services being carried out at Abubakar Imam Urology Centre to Imam Wali General Hospital in the metropolis.
This was made known by the Director-General of the board, Dr. Nasiru Alhassan Kabo, in a press release issued and signed by the head of Public Relations Unit of the outfit, Ibrahim Abdullahi, which was made available to media organisations.
It could be recalled that the state-owned Urology Centre has been converted to Coronavirus isolation centre by the state government under Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to further contain the spread of the dreaded disease.
Dr. Kabo noted that the decision is imperative in view of the fact that urinary diseases are among the diseases that require utmost attention and quick intervention due to their high prevalence among people.
“I wish to inform the general public that henceforth, all services that are being rendered in the Urology Centre will now be conducted at Imam Wali General Hospital.
“All the needed facilities, manpower and structures had been provided for the smooth running of the services.
“Therefore, people with urinary complications should feel relaxed and go to Imam Wali as services will continue as usual”, the D-G assured.
He then called on the affected people to strictly adhere to the instructions and measures put in place to curb the spread of Covid-19 such as use of face masks, sticking to social distancing, and avoiding overcrowding as protection against contracting of the disease.
Dr. Kabo further assured that Governor Ganduje would not relent in his efforts to finding other alternatives through which healthcare services in the state would continue to significantly be improved at all times.
He added: “We at the board are determined and we will do all our possible best to complement government efforts to taking healthcare services of Kano State to the greater heights.”
The statement revealed that Imam Wali General Hospital is located at Jan Bulo, along Bayero University, New Site Road, Kano.
