President commissions 100-bed Ga-East district hospital Featured

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo yesterday commissioned the 100-bed Ga-East district hospital, which is part of the “Ghana Hospital Project” initiated by the Government of Ghana, in 2008, and executed by EUROGET De-Invest S.A of Egypt.

The hospital is the second to be commissioned, so far, by President Akufo-Addo under the project, following the August 18 opening of the Upper West Regional Hospital at Wa.

Speaking at the ceremony, the President commended EUROGET for completing the hospital a month ahead of schedule, and urged them to do same with the other projects at Tepa, Twifo Praso, Konongo, Salaga, Nsawkaw and Kumasi Sewua.

“This hospital has been long awaited in Ga-East, and it is good that, today, the demand for a district hospital of quality has been realised. Residents and surrounding health facilities in Ashongman, Dome, Haatso, Kwabenya and Madina will now gain access to improved healthcare from the Ga-East Hospital,” he said.

Scope

The “Ghana Hospital Project” involves the design, construction and equipping of one military hospital, two regional hospitals, and six district hospitals at a cost of US$339 million. It falls under the broader objective of providing infrastructure for the delivery of effective healthcare to the citizenry.

The Ga-East hospital is fitted with modern medical equipment, and designed with several departments, including an administration block, out-patient department (OPD), physiotherapy unit, pharmacy, radiology unit, laboratory, surgical suite, emergency & casualty Unit, among others.

President Akufo-Addo, thus, reinforced the call to the administrators to embrace and strengthen the culture of maintenance.

“This edifice has been put up at great cost to our nation, and we should be in the position, some ten years down the line, to see it still in good condition. It should not fall in the ways in which several institutions… in Ghana have gone. The leadership of this facility must set the example for its periodic and constant maintenance,” he added.

Improving access

President Akufo-Addo assured Ghanaians that his government is committed to improving access to essential and quality health services, through the provision of the necessary infrastructure, equipment and logistics, including the deployment of appropriate technology as part of the drive to attaining universal health coverage (UHC).

He noted that the National Health Insurance Scheme, “which was left in ruins” by the NDC, has been revived again by another NPP-led government.

“We have cleared the GH¢1.2 billion arrears we inherited, and brought the operations of the NHIS back to life. We have also launched the policy of mobile renewal of NHIS membership,” he stated.

As part of the promise to procure one ambulance each for the 275 constituencies in Ghana, the President stated that government has taken stock of the first batch of nine ambulances, adding that the rest will be in by December.

“We are delivering essential medical health products through the use of drones, and, just within the past five months of its operations, I am told over one-thousand (1,000) flights have been made from the first site in Omenako, with over five thousand (5,000) products delivered,” President Akufo-Addo said.

He continued, “We are also leveraging the use of technology, with some of our healthcare facilities, before the end of the year, going paperless. We have deployed an electronic platform for logistics management information systems for the distribution of drug and non-drug commodities in the country.”
