The Deputy Director of Public Health at the Western Regional Health Directorate, Dr. Gifty Amugi has commended the Management of the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital for their efforts at widening the range of services offered at the Regional Hospital.
Dr. Amugi was addressing a gathering at a ceremony to inaugurate a new Endoscopy Center at the Hospital. The new Endoscopy Center follows a recent launch of a Diagnostic Center at the Hospital. Both initiatives have been secured through Public-Private Partnership (PPP) arrangements.
It is anticipated that the commencement of these services at the Hospital will bring relief to clients who hitherto have to access these services outside the Regional Hospital.
In an interview with the media, the private partner to the Endoscopy Center, Paul Aidoo indicated that all is set for the centre to render quality Endoscopy services. He says nurses have been adequately trained and arrangements have been made for specialized doctors to handle the Endoscopy processes. He promised to maintain a good partnership to help the Hospital achieve its vision.
In his welcome address to guests at the launch, the Head of Administration of Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital Mr. Michael Danso observed that the launch of the Diagnostic and Endoscopy centres could partly prepare the hospital towards attaining its vision of a Teaching Hospital.
The Clinical Coordinator of Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, Dr. Edward Amihere who stood in for the Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Tambil did a presentation to explain some importance and benefits of Endoscopy.
