Specialist Hospital In Mazowe To Open In August - UZ Vice-Chancellor
A specialist hospital currently under development in Mazowe is set to start operating in August this year, according to University of Zimbabwe (UZ) Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Mapfumo.
The project is led by the UZ, with funding coming from the government.
In an interview with The Sunday Mail, Prof Mapfumo said the facility will have an Oral Health Unit, Eye Centre, Invitro Fertilisation Unit (IVF) Unit, and Diagnostic Laboratory. He said:
We have been putting mechanisms in place to accelerate construction works. We are building capacity to do the construction through our newly established Department of Engineering, Infrastructure and Estate.
The groundbreaking of the main site was done by the President but we do have the Oral Health Unit, Eye Centre, IVF Unit and Diagnostic Laboratory, which are now at equipmentation phase.

So, we are hoping that those units should be functioning before August this year if we get a good lead of time of part of the critical equipment.
We were importing some of the equipment but now, we are trying to look at what we can source in the country and that’s the phase we are in now.
The second module is the pharmacy building, the third module is oncology and the fourth is cardiology.
We also have the outer site where we are doing the public and environmental health building.
Mapfumo said the completion of the Quinary hospital will result in a reduction of the estimated US$400 million that Zimbabweans spend on importing medical services.
