Teboho Lebone started this petition to Free State Department of Health and
  • Matjhabeng is among the most populated regions in the Free State. The region has only one public hospital, Bongani Regional Hospital, which caters for not only the residents of Thabong, but for patients who are residents of Matjhabeng in its entirety. This said, the hospital faces a daily influx of patients to which it cannot respond to the best of its ability. Many patients therefore are at the receiving end of an under staffed hospital, with many not being attended to for hours upon arrival. I put forth the motion that Matjhabeng Local Municipality, Lejweleputswa District Municipality, Free State Provincial Government and the Free State Department of Health address this issue in the most practical of ways; by refurbishing Kopano Hospital (Old Welkom Hospital). This will not only alleviate the pressure faced by the staff of Bongani Regional Hospital, but it will benefit the patients who are at the mercy of a competent and well-run hospital, especially now with the Covid-19 pandemic in full swing. The construction of a new hospital will provide job opportunities for the people of Matjhabeng. After construction, the new hospital will provide employment for many qualified administrative and health professionals from Matjhabeng, and an alternative to Bongani Regional Hospital for ailing residents. Please help me get this to the right people by sharing as much as possible.
