The Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu, has visited an ongoing hospital project at Weta in the Ketu North District, as part of his three-day tour of the Volta Region.

The 60-bed hospital, which is intended to serve as a district hospital for the area, forms part of an 80-million-euro project for 5 district hospitals and 1 polyclinic across the country.

When completed, the hospital will consist of an out-patients department (OPD), emergency unit, 2 theatres, a surgical ward, maternity and obstetrics unit, a morgue, a laboratory, a pharmacy and a kitchen. It will also have eight staff houses to serve as accommodation for workers.

During his inspection, Mr Manu reiterated the importance of the project to the government’s commitment to achieving universal health coverage.

The 350-metre square project, being constructed by VAMED Construction Limited from Austria, which started in 2018, is expected to be completed in September 2020.

The minister also paid a courtesy call on Togbi Sri III, Awomefia of the Anlo State.
