The National Spinal Injury Hospital might soon get a facelift should current plans by the government materialise.
Health CAS Rashid Aman has disclosed that the government intends to have the facility grow further to become a Centre of Excellence in Africa with the support of partners, well-wishers and other stakeholders.
Among priority areas will be ensuring its expansion in terms of space, with discussions underway mulling on whether to develop it into a high rise facility or find an alternative expansive location.
The CAS also disclosed that the ministry will work towards creating the right enabling environment for staff at the facility to perform their best as well as facilitate the provision of assisted devices and technology to the clients of the institution.
“Because of the restriction of space, we are seriously considering the future location of a facility like this, we have two options we are considering,” Aman said.
“One is to remain on-site here and go upwards the other is to try and explore and see whether we can get more expansive space to develop and build a Centre of excellence than where we are,” he added.
