The President of the Republic, Mr Akufo-Addo, says his government since 2017 has embarked on construction and completion of some thirty-two (32) hospital projects in the Ashanti Region. Speaking at the commissioning of the 60-bed Asante Akim Municipal Hospital on Sunday, 16th October 2022, as part of his 4-day working visit of

 

the Ashanti Region, President Akufo-Addo stressed that I am not referring to CHPS compounds and health centres, I am talking specifically about hospital projects. Under Agenda 111, the President noted that his government is constructing sixteen (16) district hospitals in the Trede, Kokoben, Boamang, Nsuta Sekyere, Manso Adubia,

 

 

 

 

Mankranso, Kwabenakwa, Barekese, Kodie, Asiwa, Akrofuom, Adugyama, Adansi Asokwa, Asokore Mampong, Bantama and Nyinahin, in addition to the construction of a psychiatric hospital in Onwe, in the Ejisu Municipality. There are five (5) hospitals being constructed by VAMED Engineering in Manso Nkwanta,

 

 

Twedie, Sabronum, Drobonso and Suame. Under the EUROGET Project, initiated by the NPP under President Kufuor, the Akufo-Addo Government has seen to the completion of the Ahafo Ano North District Hospital in Tepa, and the Asante Akyem Hospital in Konongo. As I indicated earlier,

 

 

 

 

the two hundred and fifty bed Ashanti Regional Hospital in Sewua, and the five hundred bed Military Hospital at Afari will be commissioned and completed next year,” he said. The President continued, “Again, under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the construction of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Maternity and Children’s

 

 

Block, which had stalled for forty-one (41) years, have been duly reactivated, and work is progressing steadily. We are also completing two district hospital projects in Fomena and Kumawu, which were inherited from the predecessor Government.” He told the gathering that, very soon, work will commence on the construction

 

 

 

 

of district hospitals at Offinso and Effiduase, as will work on the completion of Maternity Blocks at Tafo and the Kumasi South Hospitals, and the construction of a residential facility at Abrepo for Kumasi South Hospital. As part of my tour of Ashanti, I will, on the Wednesday, inspect ongoing work on the construction of a Trauma

 

 

Hospital at Obuasi, which is also being undertaken by Universal Hospital Group,” he stated.  Commissioning the Asante Akim Hospital in the Konongo, which is part of the “Ghana Hospital Project”, initiated by the Kufuor Government in 2008, and executed by EUROGET De-Invest S.A of Egypt, President Akufo-Addo indicated that

 

 

this is the sixth Hospital he is commissioning under the Project. This Hospital has been long awaited in Konongo, and it is good that, today, the demand for a Municipal Hospital of quality has been realised. Residents and surrounding health facilities will now gain access to improved healthcare, he said.
