Construction of new C. H. Rennie Hospital in Liberia underway

President Weah, On Wednesday officially broke ground on a new C. H. Rennie Hospital in Liberia, to replace the one that was completely destroyed in a fire disaster. Patients have had trouble obtaining medication since its damage. And they had to be transported to JFK and other hospitals in Monrovia and other regions of the nation. In a ceremony on Wednesday, Weah expressed his gratitude for the groundbreaking of the hospital, which when finished would meet the medical needs of not only the county but also those of neighboring villages in the area.

He claimed that by building the new C. H. Rennie Hospital in Liberia, his administration has shown its dedication to meeting Liberians’ medical needs and its devotion to the people of Margibi County.

Weah took advantage of the opportunity to speak with at-risk youngsters receiving treatment at the hospital. And encouraged them to stick with their resolutions to stop using drugs.

He said, “We used to live in the ghetto. But the day we made the decision to change, we stuck to it; only you can change yourself.”

Capacity and cost of the new C. H. Rennie Hospital in Liberia

President Weah donated $250,000.00 in 2022 for emergency reconstruction of the new C. H. Rennie Hospital in Liberia, after it suffered damage. The 150-bed facility will be situated in the old hospital compound, as part of the President’s commitment following the fire incident to construct a larger state-of-the-art structure in Margibi County. The CDC Standard-bearer has consistently emphasized that whether or not it is done during an election season, the government is required to carry out development initiatives. The newly built housing units that His Administration had created for use by the medical personnel were also dedicated by the President during his visit.

President Weah was thanked by a representative of the “under-rehabilitation at-risk youths” for assisting in their return to daily life. Only President Weah, in his opinion, is concerned about their situation.

He said, “The prevalence of illicit drugs in the nation is not President Weah’s fault.”

Before the Liberian Leader entered politics, he claimed, the nation had been ravaged by illegal substances. All day, Weah maintained contact with the residents of Margibi County.
