On the fringes of these viciousness, a patient who has just undergone surgery at the hospital, Nathaniel Kelvin, is entreating Liberians to avoid nasty comments and rather support the works of the hospital by arriving earlier for treatment.
According to him, the hospital can be the best when citizens join hands of support and not to tear it down.
In an interview with the Capitol Times following a successful surgery last Friday, Kelvin said despite challenges, the hospital is focused on providing quality services to patients.
“Taking advantage of the HEARTTS Foundation medical supply to the hospital, I asked the hospital administrator to set an appointment so that I could be examined,” he noted.
“Following a colonoscopy, which is a stomach examination, it was discovered that I had a growth somewhere in my stomach that should not have been there and I was told I needed to have the growth removed. I now feel good and optimistic as the surgery was successful and JFK met up with the task,” Kelvin narrated.
He emphasized that people usually view the hospital differently and they do not know the true story about JFK.
“I am very impressed now because I actually have gone through a procedure here at the hospital and even though there is a lot of work to be done on the infrastructure I think they have captured the mindset and attitude of the nurses and doctors,” he intoned, adding, “I think the hospital is making some great strides in the infrastructure and capacity building sectors”.
“Let us not bring it down; we need to put arms around the hospital and make sure we come earlier and not when our medical situations get worse,” Kelvin stated.
