St Ritas Hospital in bad state

GLEN COWIE – Concerns from members of the community in Sekhukhune district continue to mount on the conditions at St Ritas Hospital in Glen Cowie.

Residents expressed concerns on the bad state of the hospital and appeal to authorities to attend to matter.

According to the residents, the road which leads to the hospital is fast dilapidating, refuse is not frequently removed and some toilets are not in a functional state while other are unclean.

The Bolsheviks Party of South Africa (BPSA), an opposition party in Sekhukhune District Municipality Council, announced that it was concerned about the condition of the road leading to the health facility as it was completely in a bad state.

Seun Mogotji, BPSA leader, said they therefore called for the immediate intervention by the Department of Public Works to improve the situation.

Mogotji said as a party they were concerned that patients may lose their lives on their way to the hospital because of the bad state of the road as ambulances were compelled to move slowly as a result of the dilapidated road.

“We are also concerned about the condition of the hospital itself, the hospital’s surrounding is not attractive at all. The hospital environment requires urgent attention. The drainage system is not working and the surrounding leaves much to be desired,” said Mogotji.

Mogotji added that therefore were appealing to the hospital management to look into the matter and give urgent attention.

“Patients will not heal because the hospital itself is sick and requires serious attention,” said Mogotji.

Attempts to get comment from the Department of Roads, Public Works and Infrastructure were not successful at the time of going to press.
