Monrovia – Barely a month from now residents of Johnsonville outside of Monrovia will have access to a 21-bedroom modern clinic which is to be opened in the community in early January 2017.
The modern clinic which contains a general and paediatrics wards as well as laboratory and a pharmacy named is being built around the KpeKpe Town area in the Johnsonville Township.
Owner of the clinic, Mary Moore Kieh, who made the disclosure over the weekend to the FrontPageAfrica said that the clinic will be officially opened to the public in early January at an elaborate program to be held on the clinic premises.
The opening is expected to be attended by the President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and other distinguished guests.
Mary Moore, a mid-wife by profession, returned to Liberia from the United States to manage the clinic. She said she was moved by the dire need for a medical center in Johnsonville.
She said the clinic is named in honour of her late brother, Robert Moore, who was very dear to her life but got sick and died.
Madam Kieh called on the community members who will be benefiting from the clinic to see the development as their own initiative because the clinic is a gift she had brought back home after her stay in the United States.
“There are some of our friends who have gone to the US and fail to give back to their motherland; but for me I have built this clinic to help my people and it is free of any political motive,” said Madam Kieh.
She indicated that in early January when the clinic is opened, it would be catering to only outgoing patients until the necessary mechanisms are put into place where patients will be admitted on a long time basis.
She also indicated that the administrator of the clinic is seeking application for any qualified medical practitioners who are will to seek employment opportunity with the clinic.
Though with the clinic is privately owned, Madam Kieh is appealing to lawmakers of the Montserrado District #2 and any well-meaning Liberians to come out with any help that could help sustain the clinic.
She said though it is a private clinic, cost of treatment would be very affordable so that every resident of the community would gain access to medical attention.
