Demsa Health Referral Center Opening
On February 24, 2017, the Lutheran Church of Christ Health Service Board held a ribbon cutting and opening of the renovated Demsa Health Referral Center. Mount Calvary was the primary contributor for this project, through our Mission Ready Capital Campaign a few years back. Both existing buildings were demolished to walls and floors starting with the Out-Patient Clinic in 2014. Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry has managed the project financing. The Out-Patient Clinic had a small expansion added to the front of the building, new higher roof, new electrical and plumbing. When the Out-Patient building was completed in 2015 all functions were moved to the Out-Patient Clinic and the In-Patient Clinic demolition and construction was started. The In-Patient Clinic was expanded to include a minor surgical theater, two delivery rooms, two wards and toilet facilities for the wards. Electrical power from the national power grid, a back-up generator and an Un-Interruptible Power System for critical circuits were added. While the facility is operational, there are several items still being worked on with the money remaining in the construction fund.
