Liberia’s President George Weah has thanked the UAE for helping to establish a hospital in the country. The regards were made through a phone call to the UAE President Sheikh Mohamed.
Emirates Hospital in Gbarpolu County was launched on Wednesday by Mr Weah in the presence of Sheikh Shakhbout bin Nahyan, the Minister of State.
Mr Weah mentioned Sheikh Mohamed that the hospital will provide treatment and diagnostic services to Liberians as well as people living in neighbouring Sierra Leone.
During their conversation, the heads of the states also discussed ways of furthering friendship and co-operation ties in various fields.
Emirates Hospital reportedly consists of a 125-bed capacity and covers an area of 80,000 square metres. The facility has operating rooms, a modern laboratory, an intensive care unit and various specialised departments. It is also powered by a solar energy system.
