Lack of certain basic facilities, notably a mortuary is hampering effective and efficient health delivery services at the Bole District Hospital in the Savannah Region.
The situation has reduced the status of the Hospital as a District referral point with a large clientele.
The District Hospital which was commissioned in 1974 and two years away from Golden Jubilee is the seat of all health activities in the District and also has a large catchment area .
The Paramount Chief of the Bole Traditional Area, Sarfo Kutuge Feso(l), made the appeal during the inauguration of an ultra- modern 45- bed capacity maternity and children’s ward built for the Bole District Hospital by the Lordina Foundation.
The commission of the project through the Lordina Foundation is in celebration of the couple’s 30th marriage anniversary.
He said the hospital has been in operations since 2016 without a mortuary and that the need for a mortuary was long overdue since the area was prone to accidents and expressed grave concern about the situation, which must be tackled with all the urgency it deserved.
Bolewura, therefore appealed to the Former President and son of the land John Mahama, the Government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to come to the aid of the Hospital to save to help improve quality health delivery.
