The ultramodern Mother and baby Unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital is ready for use.
The facility which was built following a documentary by JoyNews’ SSeth Kwame Boateng highlighting the defects and deteriorating nature of the old facility that led to the deaths of mothers and babies at the hospital.
The newly built facility will house the Maternity, Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care units.
The new facility will provide the staff and patients adequate space for different types of procedures.
The new facility has nine birthing beds compared to two in the previous one and an additional theatre has been added to the existing two, making them three. There is also an increase from the current capacity of 4 to 12 simultaneous births.
The new facility also has enough cots, 130 in all as compared to the 46 in the old facility. There are 15 incubators in this new facility.
The project was accomplished by First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo and her Foundation partnered The Multimedia Group, the parent company amongst others through a fund raising.
