The private facilities charge between Shillings 25,000 and 50,000 for X-ray and ultra-sound scan services. At KAM Images Center, just opposite the hospital, a number of patients line up every day to access X-ray and other services. Others patients end up at Soroti Community or Joint Clinic among other renowned private facilities.
The hospital currently lacks vital drugs. Power supply is unstable. The X-ray machine remains closed as the hospital is yet to fulfil the conditions that led to its closure. In June this year, the Uganda Atomic Energy Council AEC-Uganda ordered the closure of the X-Ray and Scan machine section of the hospital saying it was below the required standards.
