All this has been implemented since GM's last visit 2 years ago, when a partnership protocol was signed between the hospital and the Order of St. Gabriel.
The hospital will soon be inaugurated by the President of the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, His Excellency Alassane Ouattara.
The Order of St. Gabriel in June 2015 had given to Father Honzu in Lyon a sum of 20000 € which allowed the financing of the delivery rooms the purchase of beds and mattresses, and a colposcope and 2 ambulances.
After a welcome speech, Father Honzu organizes a site visit.
The Grand Master and his suite were able to talk to the hospital staff for a long time, which gave them an exceptional welcome, as only Africans and especially Ivorians know how to do.
The visit ended with the inauguration of the Mother-Child Wing, and the surprise discovery of the marble plaque with the arms of the Order of St. Gabriel, commemorating the constant efforts of our Order in his favor.
The mother-child wing of the hospital is called since February 21: "Wing mother child Saint-Gabriel-"
The Grand Master, Mr. Roland Roux de Chavanes, thanked Father Honzu for this delicate attention and congratulated him and all the staff for the quality of the work provided and the beauty of this hospital which could cover the needs of the sub-region if necessary .
The hospital now has about one hundred people (doctors and hospital services).
However, there is a lack of doctors, an approach will be undertaken to the return of the delegation in France to plan to send to Yamoussoukro doctors and nurses, as part of temporary and voluntary actions. Members of the Order, doctors will be invited to collaborate in the realization of this project.
Following the visit of the hospital, the Mayor of Yamoussoukro Jean Kouakou and his municipal council organized a reception worthy of the welcome given to the personalities at the mayor's office in the presence of the Prefect, customary chiefs and political and military personalities of the region.
