The first new Ghana District Hospital launches
The recently completed Shai Osudoku District Hospital in Dodowa, Ghana was handed over in a very special ceremony earlier this week.
The Dodowa project is the first in a series of six new state hospitals across Ghana with the construction of new hospitals in Fomena, Kumawu, Abetifi, Garu-Tempane and Sekondi well underway.
Available funding available required low cost, innovative solutions. Working closely with the Ministry and infrastructure project management provider and NMSI, tp bennett have taken a strategic approach to ensure that the investment focussed upon meeting the primary healthcare needs of Ghana.
Dodowa's new 120 bed facility provides both modern and traditional health services including surgical and paediatric wards, accident and emergency units and separate areas for male and female patients.
The project drew on local materials and skills, providing work for more than 2,000 local workers. The overall developments will also create a further 135 jobs for medical staff in Ghana.
The launch of the completed Dodowa hospital on Monday 4th April was screened live on national TV with President John Mahama present.
