The Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services CBCHS has dedicated a new building to house services of the Bafoussam Baptist Health Center popularly referred to as Mbingo Annex.
The giant building described as both a spiritual and physical tower was dedicated Friday August 10 during a high profile event in Bafoussam.

In a dedication devotion, Rev Ngalla Godlove Administrative assistant to the Executive President of the CBC with inspiration from the Biblical book of Proverbs likened the imposing structure to the word of God presented as a tower into which many can run to in times of need to seek refuge. “The word of God like the building provides refuge….. you will receive treatment in the name of the Lord….the name that saves.” The representative of the Executive President said.
The Mayor of the Bafoussam I Council Jules Hilaire FOCKA FOCKA described the building as a source of joy to the inhabitants of his municipality. Being a Medical Doctor by training, the Mayor disclosed that during an inspection visit to the building by Health and Administrative authorities of the West Region, it was satisfactorily concluded that the new structure fulfilled all laid down technical specifications. Dr Jules Hilaire FOCKA FOCKA assured the CBCHS of the effective use of this structure by the people of Bafoussam and beyond.

With over 44000 patients received annually now, Prof Tih Pius Muffi considers this growth a confirmation of quality services and expresses the hope that the facility will soon gain the status of a hospital.
