AGA health foundation, a full subsidiary of A.G.A (Ghana) has embarked on a mission to render intensive-care health delivery for the Obuasi community. Following the restructuring of A.G.A. Obuasi mine hospital transition to A.G.A. Health Foundation (A.G.A.H.F) as a non-profit legal entity to leverage on external health services for the community, key grievances on the lack of response to emergency health cases in the municipality has called for immediate attention.
Health centers in the area are noted for delivering domestic services on minor patient cases with less regards to major cases, much due to the lack of intensive care equipment, absence of intensive-care health personnel and predictably failure to respond with effective measures. The obuasi community currently springs over 15 hospitals with A.G.A.H.F. hospital dignified as a major center for referrals on unordinary patient cases.
Speaking at the Project-CURE items handing over ceremony, Executive-Director of A.G.A.H.F. Mr. Richard Cromwell delivered that a greater fraction of the newly acquired medical equipment as donation by Project-CURE, an American-based N.G.O specializing in the donation of medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world, will go down as the most significant in terms of re-equipping A.G.A.H.F.
Equipment received to refurnish the Intensive-care unit of the hospital included operating room lights, Intensive care unit beds, general surgery packs, Neurosurgery packs & supplies, urology and other assorted sundries. Mr. Cromwell reiterated a guaranteed trust that patients’ long-distant referral rates will be curbed when well maintained.
On an Interview with ObuasiToday, Mr. Cromwell also noted that personnel from A.G.A.H.F have been enrolled to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (K.A.T.H) on training to provide services at the intensive –care unit. Our sources trust the assurance that all personnel under training will soon set to deliver, fully equipped with immediate effect.
A.G.A.H.F. to serve as a requisite health center providing on timely response to chief emergency cases will prompt a huge reduction in rampant death rates of patients requiring intensive-services. The hospital continues to be a trusted brand and is yet to also achieve highly respected standards in the country for their quality provisions. Executive-director for A.G.A.H.F assured A.G.A management that these measures will be utilized diligently and well maintained to improve health care for the obuasi community & its environs, and believe this gesture demonstrates A.G.A’s commitment to the people of the community.
