The Board Chairman of the Ghana National Sports Authority (NSA), Hon. Kwadwo Baah Agyemang and the CEO of Asadu Royal Waste Management Company Limited, Dr. Edward Asadu have donated custom designed ultra-modern beds worth Forty five Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHc 45,000) to the Agogo Presbyterian Hospital.
The Agogo Presbyterian Hospital, located in the Ashanti region, is the oldest mission Hospital in Ghana which was established on 21st March, 1931. The hospital is a referral Centre that takes care of patients from all over Ghana and neighbouring countries of Togo, Burkina Faso and Cote d’Ivoire.
The donation, which was done on Wednesday, 8th May, 2019, received commendations from the Management and staff of the hospital. In all, a total of 10 ultra-modern beds imported from Germany at a cost of GHc 45,000.00 were donated to the hospital. In a short but colourful ceremony, Dr. Edward Asadu remarked that this wonderful gesture was necessitated by the biblical imperative “ *We who are strong ought to bear with the failing of the weak and not please ourselves” Romans 15:1.* He stated that the delivery of quality healthcare is non-negotiable, however, inadequate medical logistics in this part of the country has hampered expected results. The donation was therefore to assist and enhance the logistical situation of the hospital, especially to reduce the no bed syndrome in order to ensure that patients who seek medical attention at the hospital are offered services of the highest quality.
The General Manager of Agogo Hospital, Mr Alex Nyamesa Kesse, who received the beds on behalf of the hospital expressed gratitude to both Hon. Kwadwo Baah Agyemang and Dr. Edward Asadu and promised to put the items to good use in ensuring quality clinical services to their clients. He said the donation has come at an opportune time when the hospital is grappling with problems of inadequate medical supplies and equipment, partially owing to the delay in the payment of National Health Insurance claims. He further appealed to individuals and corporate bodies, especially, natives of Asante Akyem North, both home and abroad to emulate the shining example of Hon. Kwadwo Baah Agyemang and Dr. Edward Asadu in order to make Agogo hospital a Centre of Excellence in Health delivery.
Also present at the Ceremony were Hon. Alhaji Sulemana Abdul Hamid who represented Hon. Kwadwo Baah Agyemang, Mr. Emmanuel Boakye Appiah – Head of Pharmacy, Mr. George Adusei Boahen – Nursing Administrator, and Mr. George Osae – Accounts Manager of Agogo Hospital. The rest are: Rev. Mavis Yeboah – Hospital’s Chaplain, Mr. Cosmas Beyuo – Head of Administration and Mr. Felix Anane – Head, Human Resource Department.
