The journey to the top
Centre Pasteur was created 60 years ago, and has been consistent in its call to providing quality medical laboratory services.
For about 40 years after the creation of the institution, medical tests were manually carried out.
But given the high demand from patients, sometimes coming from other parts of the country, management settled for more performant equipments .
Around the year 2000 , Centre Pasteur began to progressively acquire automatic Laboratory machines . Modern labs were also constructed to suit the new vision.
These machines improved the output and reduced the time patients had to wait for lab results.
But this did not solve the problem, Dr. Atangana Paul Adrien, says “some patients used to stay for long hours, and return without their results, so we were obliged to begin working 24/7”.
Since July 1 , 2019, laboratory technicians work round the clock in order to meet the demand.
Accordingly, the workforce has been increased, necessitating a better management of the facility.
Since 2015, Dr. Atangana Paul Adrien, says management has become dynamic and efficient.
Authorities of the institution systematically organize training workshops and seminars to strengthen the capacity of the personnel.
In 60 years, Centre Pasteur has successfully upheld professional standards.
