CBC Health Services Grabs More Media Accolades

By Akem Olives Nkwain The Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) Health Services once again has been singled out by the media in Cameroon, as the leading health provider with people-oriented services. The recognition was conferred on the organization recently during an award ceremony organized by My Media Prime International. Presenting the award to the Director of CBC Health Services on June 2, 2020, in Bamenda, Thomas Mokom, Journalist saluted the CBC Health Services’ commitment to rendering exemplary, standard, and quality care to Cameroonians amidst odds. “You have eased the transportation of patients to and from Mbingo Baptist Hospital (MBH) in the stalemate we are all experiencing in the Northwest and South Regions. We [My Media Prime] have watched you closely and by this award appreciate you for being at the services of humanity,” stressed Mokom. Prof. Tih Pius Muffih, Director of Health Services in response said: “I am surprised that someone is watching all that we are doing as a service”. I thank you for this recognition, he added. The Director further stressed that the CBC Health Services is more and more seeking collaboration with community-based organizations, sister health providers, and non- governmental organizations to work in synergy to ensure that everyone who seeks medical attention in any of its facilities receives timely quality care. Prof. Tih used the opportunity to call on the general public to utilize the services the organization is offering. “We are improving our services every day especially the Mother and Child Health (MCH) Service, to ensure that no mother should lose her life giving birth. Equally, we are bent on reducing neonatal deaths which are still very high in the country.” Talking about service improvement, we are doing this along with infrastructure. The recent development of infrastructure across the Health Services is from a felt need. We have seen lots of congestion in all our facilities. Once there is congestion, infection prevention and control become very difficult. Therefore to prevent infection and promote quality care, there should be quality infrastructure in place. That is the reason our infrastructure are sprouting here and there, expatiated Prof. Tih. The award reads, “the CBC Health Service is awarded Winner of the Prime Award 2021 in recognition as the best Service Provider with people-oriented services. You stood tall among other Health Service Providers in the period of crisis and COVID-19 Pandemic”.
