Parliament has approved a €56.2 million loan agreement for the construction of ultra-modern hospitals across the country.

The facility from the Deutsche Bank AG and Global Services (UK) Limited, will fund the construction of trauma hospitals in Obuasi in the Ashanti Region and Anyinam in the Eastern Region, an Accident and Emergency Centre at Enyiresi Hospital and the rehabilitation of the Obuasi Health Centre.

The project which forms part of the approved list of priority projects for 2020 as captured in the Budget and Financial Policy Statement of the country is expected to be completed within three years.

Presenting the Committee’s report in Parliament on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, Chairman of the Finance Committee, Dr Mark Assibey-Yeboah, said the facility underscored the commitment of the Akufo-Addo led government towards ensuring the provision of health infrastructure across the country.

Under the facility, the yet-to-be constructed Obuasi and Anyinam Trauma Hospitals will have accident and emergency departments, main theatres, public health departments, physiotherapy departments, pharmacy units, laboratories, administration blocks, support facilities, maternity and pathology units, among others.

The Enyiresi and the Obuasi Government Hospitals are also expected to receive a massive facelift under the project.

The New Juaben South MP also informed the House that the Enyiresi Hospital though strategically located along the Accra-Kumasi highway does not have a modern Accident or Emergency Centre.

“This project is thus intended to provide the required infrastructure, medical equipment, ancillary facilities and services to ensure that the beneficiary hospitals are fully operational and befitting the status of modern hospitals with an emphasis on trauma.”

“It will also provide the enabling environment for attracting the needed healthcare professionals to the respective facilities,” Dr Mark Assibey-Yeboah said.
