CHAN gets new president

CHAN gets new president

The Chairman of Nzu­ko-Ora Nnewi who is also the Chief Medi­cal Superintendent of Nnewi Diocesan Hospital, Anglican Diocese of Nnewi, Dr. Doug­las Nkemdilim, has emerged the new president of Christian Health Association of Nigeria (CHAN) zone C.

Dr Nkemdilim in his ac­ceptance speech promised to move the association forward in the next six years, noting that the association in the next few months of his reign would witness tremendous and posi­tive changes.

The new president who is also the Anambra state chair­man of CHAN said that he will employ a pragmatic style of leadership in his new posi­tion to effect the much needed positive changes.

He noted that the state gov­ernment distributed some medical equipment and drug to CHAN through his office and that 40 percent of the peo­ple of the state seek medical at­tention in mission hospitals.

Dr Nkedilim debunked the claims in some quarters that the cost of medical services are more expensive in mission hospitals than others, noting that services in mission hospi­tals are relatively cheaper with quality services.

He urged Nigerians to al­ways make budgetary alloca­tions for their health needs in case of any eventuality.
