A 500-bed military hospital with a helipad to carry out medical evacuation will be ready for use in October this year.
Work on the military hospital, which is sited at Afariland in the Ashanti Region, has reached an advanced stage. It is expected to offer high quality and specialised medical care to the people in Ashanti Region and others from the northern sector as well those who will be seeking tertiary medical care.
Known as the 500-bed Afari Military Hospital, the facility will ease the pressure and burden on the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
The Afari Military Hospital is being built under a turnkey agreement between the government of Ghana and Euroget De-Invest, contractors of the project.
