International Medical Centre (IMC) has launched its newest branch, IMC Ntinda. A glamorous ceremony was held on 20 October 2017, at the Ntinda Complex, where the branch is situated. IMC Ntinda commenced operations in March 2017, in response to overwhelming demand from clients. “We had many clients in the area asking for the service,” Joel Oroni, the General Manager for IMCs said. “We responded to this demand and our goal is to provide the highest quality of healthcare in the area, through highly knowledgeable and experienced medical personnel” he added.
IMC Ntinda provides quality healthcare through Evidence Based Practices. These include prescription and administering of appropriate treatment. Every level of service, from administration to treatment, is closely monitored, to ensure the highest level of treatment for the client. Dr. Ian Clarke, the Chairman of the International Medical Group said, “I like the standard of excellence that IMC Ntinda is bringing.” “Emphasis is on Value for money, quality service and prescription of appropriate doses and quantity of medication,” Dr. Clarke added.
Since its inception, the centre has recorded a surge in clinical activity, with a record 7000 visits. Many clients have expressed contentment with the quality of service. Andrew Kyamagero had this to say, “IMC Ntinda is the only clinic you can walk in at 2am and experience exceptional service. They attend to you fast, you get instant results, toilets are very clean and there is a play area for kids. I am glad to have a health centre that my family can conveniently run to, even in my absence.”
As part of the celebrations, the clinic provided: free dental check-ups, free doctor consultations, free Hepatitis B screening for the first 50 people and discounted vaccination, Breast Cancer screening, HIV screening and health talks to over 200 people. There was a blood donation drive which achieved a collection of 31 units of blood. Joan Odyek, the Head of the Uganda Blood Transfusion Service (UBTS) delegation for the day, expressed her gratitude. “Every unit of blood counts, because sometimes you find someone barely hanging onto life and all they require is one unit of blood”. She said donor turn up is low therefore frequent donation drives are much appreciated.
IMC Ntinda is part of the growing network of IMCs in Uganda. The launch of the Ntinda Centre brings the total number of IMC clinics to 23. 14 of these are standalone clinics while 9 are onsite clinics operating in schools, factories and national parks. IMC Ntinda operates 24hrs a day, offering: general consultations, family medicine specialist, vaccination, obstetrics & gynaecology, antenatal, paediatircs, orthopaedics, dental, ultrasound scan, Lancet laboratory services and specialized tests (including DNA testing, newborn screening and allergy screening). IMC is part of the International Medical Group (IMG), Uganda’s leader in private healthcare provision.
