DOMINASE SDA Hospital has inaugurated its completed doctor’s bungalow, culminating in the hospital’s cause to provide desirable accommodation environment for its medical doctors.
This brings to three, the number of bungalows built for doctors working at the facility and this very one was awarded on contract to Mr. Francis Owusu of God’s Favour and Mercy Limited, a construction firm.
The building cost the hospital GH¢189, 089.00, an amount raised from its Internally Generated Funds (IGF). At an inaugural ceremony to open the bungalow at the hospital premises at Dominase in the Bekwai Municipality in the Ashanti Region, the immediate-past Medical Superintendent of the hospital, Dr. Prince Kwakye Afriyie commended authorities at the hospital for “a dream come true.”
He said he had been working at the facility since the year 2004, and for the hospital to raise that amount internally was a feather in cup of the hospital.
Having handed over to a new Medical Superintendent, Dr. Sebastian Tantuoyir, he urged him to use the bungalow to the best of his ability to raise high health standards at the hospital.
Tape Cutting to the glory of God
The President of the Ashanti South Ghana Conference (ASGC) of the SDA Church, Pastor Stephen Anokye was joined by the Acting President of Assumigya Traditional Council, Nana Ntim Banahene to cut a tape for dedication of the bungalow to the glory of God.
Pastor Anokye who is also the Board Chairman of the hospital said the facility was doing all its possible best to meet the living conditions of its workers and that the inaugural of the bungalow was a manifestation of that drive.
He said having been operating under the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG), the hospital was one of the biggest referral points in the area and it would need to provide a welcome living environment of its workers.
Expansion of facility
Dr. Tantouyir with a few weeks in office noted that given the hospital’s status as a referral point faced the problem of congestion.
He, however, appealed to government and civil society organizations (CSOs) to come to the aid of the hospital for expansion.
That to him would contribute to the intellectual, material and human resource development of the facility towards the attainment of health goals on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
