Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital Celebrates UHC Day With Massive Open Day Event

The Western Regional Hospital, Effia Nkwanta is joining the rest of the world to celebrate this year’s Universal Health Coverage Day with the first-ever Open Day event in the hospital’s history. The event slated on the 9th of December is on the theme ‘Leave no one’s health behind; invest in health systems for all ’.

The Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital is committed to the vision of the theme and has made some great strides towards that. The Open Day event is in part to showcase how the hospital, over the past two years, has tremendously increased the availability of quality and affordable healthcare services in the South Western corridor of Ghana.

Regardless of the duly acknowledged infrastructural constraints for which a re-development and upgrade are proposed and also in difficult times of public health financing, management and staff of the Hospital (with support of individuals, churches and corporate bodies) strive to serve a mission to provide access and availability of quality healthcare in a humane and friendly manner.

Over the past two years, the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital has introduced a fully set up renal unit with specialized staff. The Hospital has also trained selected staff for a soon to be opened Intensive Care Unit. The Hospital now provides a good range of diagnostic and endoscopy services for which clients previously struggled to find and has added to its range of specialists. The new range of healthcare services in the Hospital shall be part of the Open Day massive exhibition of pharmaceutical, insurance products that will take place from the forecourt of the Central Pharmacy area spanning across Blood Bank to the new Psychology Unit.
