Arundel Hospital has entered in a partnership with the country’s largest health services provider Parirenyatwa Group of Hospital in the fight against Covid-19 virus.

The agreement will see some wards at Parirenyatwa, being under the management of Arundel Hospital.

Parirenyatwa Group of Hospital explained the development in a media statement.

“Arundel has refurbished and equipped Wards C1 and C2 to a total bed capacity of 60. They have also provided staff for the two wards. The total bed space for Covid care and treatment is 425 of which Arundel is currently giving service for 60,” read the statement.

Parirenyatwa said that Covid-19 services remains free of charge and they will continue with covid screening, testing and admission of patients.

“All suspected Covid cases should go through our screening and testing process outside the Accident and Emergency Department. Confirmed cases should be referred to Ward A2 where we have doctors to attend to them. Those who require admission are sent to the Covid-19 wards depending on where space is available,” further read the statement.

This is not the first time the Government hospital entered in a partnership with private players. In 2020 Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals in partnership with Higher Life Foundation offered free Covid-19 testing for tertiary and secondary students towards the end of the second Covid-19 wave.
