Barely a month from now residents of Johnsonville outside of Monrovia will have access to a 21-bedroom modern clinic which is to be opened in the community in early January 2017.
The modern clinic which contains a general and pediatrics wards as well as laboratory and a pharmacy named is being built around the KpeKpe Town area in the Johnsonville Township.
According to Frontpage Africa, Mary Moore Kieh, a midwife by profession, made the disclosure over the weekend that the clinic will be officially opened to the public in early January at an elaborate program to be held on the clinic premises. The opening is expected to be attended by the President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and other distinguished guests.
Mary Moore, returned to Liberia from the United States to manage the clinic. She said she was moved by the desperate need for a medical center in Johnsonville. She said the clinic is named in honor of her late brother, Robert Moore, who was very dear to her life but got seriously ill and passed.
Madam Kieh called on the community members who will be benefiting from the clinic to see the development as their own initiative because the clinic is a gift she had brought back home after her stay in the United States.
“There are some of our friends who have gone to the US and fail to give back to their motherland, but for me, I have built this clinic to help my people and it is free of any political motive,” said Madam Kieh.
She indicated that in early January when the clinic is open, it would be catering to only outgoing patients until the necessary mechanisms are put into place where patients will be admitted on a long term basis.
She also indicated that the administrator of the clinic giving out applications to qualified medical practitioners who seeks employment opportunity with the clinic.
Though the clinic is privately owned, Madam Kieh is appealing to lawmakers of the Montserrado District #2 and any well-meaning Liberians to come out with any help that could help sustain the clinic.
She said though the clinic is privately owned, the cost of treatment would be very affordable so that every resident of the community would gain access to medical attention.
