Notre Dame Clinic

NOTRE DAME CLINIC
Notre Dame Clinic is a Diocesan clinic started by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1975 in Adoagyiri with a mobile unit to provide weekly outreach clinics to some of the surrounding villages. Eventually the mobile unit service of the clinic was turned over to the government due to the increase of patients at the static clinic and the lack of personnel.

The services of the clinic are offered daily Monday through Friday with staff members available on the weekend for emergency and delivery cases. The daily services include general out-patient treatment, laboratory testing, child welfare clinic and antenatal and deliveries.

Patient education is an integral part of our daily routine. This is done in small groups and individually during consultation. Topics include information about particular illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, sickle cell disease, proper diet, taking of medicines correctly, preventing recurrence of diseases, exclusive breast-feeding for the first six months of life, and prevention of diseases through personal hygiene and environmental sanitation.

The main objective of the clinic is to continue the healing ministry of Christ by the provision of holistic and quality health care to all people, especially the poor, elderly, women and children, particularly those living in the rural areas.  This is accomplished by establishing a well-equipped clinic and laboratory with qualified staff to provide medical, midwifery and primary health care services. We also strive to provide affordable, efficient and effective medical care based on Catholic Principles.


The clinic is located on the Adeiso Road in Adoagyiri.
