NIP boosts specimen transport with new vehicles

The Namibia Institute of Pathology (NIP) has purchased 18 new vehicles to improve specimen transportation and ensure timely and high-quality healthcare support.

NIP chief executive Kapena Tjombonde says the new vehicles aim to reduce transit times and streamline their specimen transportation processes, as well as uphold the integrity of all specimens during transit.

This is according to a NIP media statement released recently.

“The delivery of these new vehicles represents a proactive step in the NIP’s commitment to overcome operational challenges and deliver on its promise of excellence in healthcare support,” Tjombonde said.

Furthermore, the investment demonstrates NIP’s dedication to meet the needs of their stakeholders and serves as a signal of its commitment to operational excellence and continuous improvement, noted the NIP.

“At NIP, we are positioning ourselves to better serve the healthcare community and contribute to the overall improvement of healthcare delivery nationwide. We are confident that the new vehicles will not only address the challenges we have faced in specimen transportation but also significantly improve the efficiency and reliability of our services,” Tjombonde said.

NIP spokesperson Niita Evaristus said the vehicles are a significant milestone for NIP’s laboratories across the country and represent the institution’s commitment to invest in resources that allow the organisation to deliver exceptional care to patients and healthcare partners.

“The new fleet of cars will reduce waiting times and increase efficiency by ensuring samples are picked up from collection sites and transported safely to the nearest laboratory,” Evaristus said.
