The University of Calabar (UNICAL) Medical Centre has procured sophisticated medical equipment to boost healthcare services for students of the institution and the university community.

Dr. Kaiser Etta, Director of UNICAL Medical Centre, conducted the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) around the equipment at the medical center on campus in Calabar.

Etta said that the equipment was brought to enhance the capacity of the institution for excellence in healthcare delivery.

According to him, the University of Calabar under the management of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Florence Banku Obi is working towards making the center a cynosure for all eyes in the State.

He listed the newly procured equipment to include: an automated hematological analyzer, 5-part model, electrocardiography, patient monitor, spectrophotometer, autoclave machine, ultrasound scan machine, and x-ray machine.

“The newly procured automated hematological analyzer, the 5-part model, is the latest in Calabar. As we speak, it is only the UNICAL Medical Centre that has a 5-part analyzer in Cross River.

“Most of the hospitals around have a 3-part model, but we just got the 5-part model which is the most advanced and sophisticated.

“The device is used for carrying out full blood counts, differential blood counts, and all related blood tests.

“Electrocardiography is used for detecting heart disease, while the patient monitor is used for monitoring vital signs of patients during emergencies.

“We want to raise our power to attract not just the students and staff of UNICAL, but outside the university community with a view of meeting their health needs,” he said.

He added that the VC has been very magnanimous in giving the medical center all that is needed to make the faculty a place for excellent healthcare delivery.

Also speaking, Dr. Kingsley Akaba, Head of the Hematology Department, UNICAL, said that the equipment would help to shorten intervention time by doctors in the facility.

Akaba said that the procurement of the 5-part machine shows the preparedness of the university’s management towards providing quality healthcare for students, staff, and members of the community.
