Council is expanding Highlands Boundary Clinic to accommodate additional services.
Ward 8 Councillor Keith Charumbira expressed satisfaction with ward projects under difficult economic conditions.
“Despite the economic challenges that we are facing, I am happy with the projects being undertaken by council in line with its vision to achieve a World Class City Status by 2025. In my ward the project to expand our clinic is progressing very well.”
The city has already completed the upgrading of Mabvuku Polyclinic to a sub hospital.
Lack of adequate secondary levels of care has seen an increase in patirnt referrals to bigger institutions causing congestion.
The expansion of the scope of services offered at council clinics is expected to increase access to comprehensive health care.
