She commended Liberia’s partners who have been involved with the construction of the National Drug Service Warehouse – named and styled the “Central Medical Store” for putting their hands on desk, which resulted in the completion of the facility.

She praised authorities of the Ministry of Heath, Minister, Bernice Dahn, Senator Peter Coleman, Chairperson on Health at the Liberian Senate, and others for the achievements in carrying out the construction of the facility. President Sirleaf maintained that the maintenance of these facilities will be one of the major tasks of maintaining the facility.

In remark, Dr. Bernice Dahn, Minister of Health disclosed that the total cost of the project is approximately $5 million United States Dollars. She added that the Government of Liberia is providing $1.2 million United States Dollars. The Minister of Health revealed that Phase 1 of the “New Redemption Hospital will comprise of 155 in-patient beds with focus on paediatrics care and women health care services.

Minister Dahn said Phase-II will comprise of 159 in-patient beds and will include additional specialized services. The New Redemption Hospital will help the Ministry of Health to deliver comprehensive services to the growing population and avert future epidemics.
