Abandon 111 hospitals project; Focus on Neuroscience centre


Summary short_text

A renowned Neurosurgeon at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital has appealed to the Akufo-Addo led government to abandon the plan to construct some 100 new hospitals and focus on investing the money in the establishment of a neuroscience centre.

Dr Abdallah also slammed governments both current and previous for abandoning Ghana's biggest referral hospital describing it as criminal.

According to him, it is unheard of that a Hospital of Korle Bu's stature has only four ICU beds and a deliberate attempt has not been made over the years to expand the number of beds and monitors at the ICU. His comments come after the mother of the late Michael Kofi Asamoah whose brain condition went viral on social media, Cordelia Ama Selormey, shared her experience at the Korle Bu Hospital over how she lost her son due to the lack of basic equipment like the defibrillator.
