Last year, the MP marked the start of an 80-bed project that would house the 37 Military Hospital Cardiothoracic Centre in Accra.
The ultramodern health infrastructure will include a Cardiothoracic Training Centre and Conference room.
It will also have a VVIP clinic with three operating theatres. The ambitious project will be complete with an ICU, Robotic Unit and Executive Clinic, among other modern facilities.
It will be the only complete centre dedicated to treating cardiovascular diseases.
