NEW LABORATORY AND ICU FOR ST DOMINIC HOSPITAL, AKWATIA
On Friday 22nd May 2020, the Bishop of Koforidua Diocese Most Rev Joseph Afrifah-Agyekum cut the tape to open an Intensive Care Unit (ICU), State-of-the-art Medical Laboratory and an electronic regulated Accident and Emergency Department at the St Dominic, Akwatia. These projects were constructed as commemorative edifices to mark the 60th Anniversary of the establishment of the Hospital.
In his speech, the Administrator of the Hospital Rev. Fr Ebenezer Kenneth Abban said the realisation of the projects is an indication of the Management’s commitment to quality healthcare delivery to the clients of the facility within the Denkyembour District of the Eastern Region and beyond. With the accomplishment of these projects, the Hospital seems to demonstrate aptness in practical projection of its vision statement: “a health service that is best in meeting patients’ needs and expectation”. This was echoed in the welcome address when the Medical Director, Dr Maite Alfonso Romero, emphatically said that “St Dominic Hospital truly aims to make healthcare delivery more proactive, integrated and endearing for both our patients and the staff population at all time”. She further described the projects as “timely and appropriate”. In all, a total amount of GHS 684,955.73 went into the construction and furnishing of the three projects.
