Jayapura, Jubi – The Jayapura Public Hospital (RSUD Jayapura) would require Rp300 billion in 2017 to meet their requirements for supporting equipment, the head of the Papua Provincial Health Office drg. Aloysius Giyai said.
He said the budget could be realized, barring unforeseen circumstances.
The Director of RSUD Jayapura, he said, already presented the hospital’s requirements in front of Minister of Health Nila F Moeloek and then Minister of Politic, Legal and Security Affairs Luhut Binsar Panjaitan.
“I also support this, now we are on going to realize it and if there’s no change everything would be realized in next year,” he told Jubi at his office.
However, said Giyai, Papua Health Office has budgeted Rp 143 billion for RSUD Jayapura to complete other facilities, including some to support medical specialists.
“Of course not all medical equipment could be provided in next year, but the most urgent is to provide the equipment to support the specialists first,” he said.
Assessing the performance of Josef Rinta, the new director of RSUD Jayapura, he said Rinta has made a breakthrough in improving the hospital that is currently becoming the national referral hospital.
“Honestly, we will evaluate the performance of the new director within next year, but looking at his performance at the beginning it’s quite good, because there are no complains like the previous years. It might be one or two complaints but it’s not as worse as the previous years,” he said.
Earlier, the Director of RSUD Jayapura, Josef Rinta said this hospital is the governmental agency under the Papua Provincial Government. Therefore, all the issues related to the procurement must be done through the Papua Provincial Government. He admitted to have communication with the governor and the equipment would be completed next year. (*/rom)
