Management of the Diagnostic Center Limited (DCL) has debunked claims that the late Samuel Waterberg was managing the centre until his death.

The management said the deceased served as the General Manager of the centre from 2012 to 2014.

“During his tenure, Mr Waterberg was a hard and exemplary worker who served the company well. He was a valued member of our team in the years above and will be missed.

“We wish to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased and request the general public to respect the privacy of his family,” it said in a statement.

There have been reports in the media that 41-year-old Ghana-Dutch citizen who was a victim of the Covid-19 pandemic was the head of the Diagnostic Center Limited.

But the management of the Centre said that is not the case. “We want to set the record straight for the general public that Mr Waterberg was not an employee or CEO at DCL during the time of his demise.

“Since 2014, there has not been any employment relationship between the late Samuel Waterberg and DCL.

“Diagnostic Centre Limited, therefore, would like to notify the general public to disregard the misrepresented facts put out by some people in the media,” the statement added.

The management said such reports were unverified and false. According to the management, it is “taking immediate steps towards retraction of this false information from the public domain and therefore apologize to the staff, directors, referring doctors and the general public for damages and inconvenience suffered as a result of their wrongful reportage.”

The Diagnostic Centre Limited has assured the general public that it has put in place necessary preventive measures aimed at protecting its staff and clients from the coronavirus infection.

The management said the Centre is not affected by the ongoing lockdown directives observed in the capital as a health institution urging people in need of its services to walk through their doors from Monday to Saturday for quality and same-day reporting for all our medical diagnostics modalities.
