Gov’t To Build 5 District Hospitals

The Government of Ghana has signed two separate contracts with Vamed Engineering Group for the construction of five district hospitals and a polyclinic in the country.

The district hospitals will be situated at Buipe, Tolon, Sawla, Somanya, and Vheta while one polyclinic will be placed in Bamboi.

A statement released and signed by Tony Goodman, Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Health, said: “The other contract involves five separate polyclinics in Greater Accra, which would be situated in Adentan, Ashaiman, Bortianor, Sege, and Oduma.”

It added: “The Minister of Health, Alex Segbefia, said this falls in line with the president’s vision to increase healthcare facilities and strengthen the existing ones in the country, based on the country’s infrastructure deficit. … This he said has gone through the process of government approvals.”

“Alex Segbefia indicated that the sector had seen improvement in terms of infrastructural development across the country, as part of social interventions in the health sector. Some, he said, were the numerous Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compounds, and regional and teaching hospitals being built by this government.

“He explained that Vamed Engineering Group had been one of the major stakeholders in the health Industry and had been responsible for the construction of the Sogakope Hospital in the Volta Region and other polyclinics in the country.”

For his part, the Regional Director (Middle East & Africa) of Vamed Engineering Group, Mr. Oliver Storzer, mentioned that the company was ready and would deliver these hospitals in two to three years.

Mr. Oliver Storzer assured the Ministry that the company would build on the 15 years of trust it had earned with the country by delivering on the job, while expressing the company’s gratitude to government, the statement said.
