Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Tuesday cut the sod for the construction of an ultra-modern 100-bed capacity hospital at Walewale in the West Mamprusi Municipality to enhance healthcare delivery in the area, ABC News can report.

The health facility, funded by the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) is expected to have state-of-the-art amenities to enable it function efficiently to reduce the incidents of preventable deaths caused by diseases among others.

Some of the facilities include Pharmacy and Physiotherapy units, General laboratory and Radiology lab, an Eye unit, Dental unit, Clinical Specialists Unit (CSU), Theatre and Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Obstetrics and Gynecology Unit and Medical wards.

Others are a mortuary, Central Sterilization unit, Laundry and dining hall, as well as other modern structures and facilities needed for contemporary healthcare delivery.

Speaking at the sod-cutting ceremony, Dr Bawumia noted that the project formed part of government’s effort to achieve an even distribution of quality healthcare in the country.

He emphasised the Akufo-Addo-led administration’s resolve to bring development, relief and progress to the people and do so in the spirit of equality and equity.

“The Government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will continue to close the inequality gap with its social interventions and programmes across Ghana. This will help the delivery of health services to patients in Walewale and its environments and in the North East Region as a whole, he said.
