The MDCG said the facility was operating unlawfully and on account of public health and safety concerns.

“It has again come to the attention of the council that Dr Dominic Obeng Andoh, without lawful authority, has reopened his facility to the members of the public.”

In January 2017, the Medical and Dental Council closed down Obengfo Hospital for operating illegally.

It could be recalled that the hospital facility faced similar issue in 2013, after a patient of the hospital accused Dr. Obeng-Andoh of conducting wrongful cosmetic surgery on her.
