Mrs. Veronica Alele, the Bole District Chief Executive, at weekend performed groundbreaking ceremony for work to begin on construction of an ultra-modern hospital facility costing millions of Ghana cedis in the newly created Savannah Region.

The State of the Art pro-poor Leyaata (rescue us) Model Hospital, to be situated at Carpenter, a community along the Bamboi-Wa highway is expected to be completed within 24 months.

It is being funded by the Northern Empowerment Association (NEA), and Ghana Rural Integrated Development (GRID), non-governmental organisations and a helipad would be constructed as part of the project.

Solar panels would also be installed on the roofs to provide 24 hours of power to the facility. 

Mrs. Alele stressed the government’s commitment to creating opportunities for the private sector to thrive and facilitate accelerated national development.

She said the facility would create employment for both skilled and unskilled labour, and commended the NEA and its partners for their continuous support towards the development of the district and the Northern region by extension.

Mrs. Alele said the Assembly would provide the needed human resource and financial support towards its successful completion to make it the biggest health facility that would provide healthcare services to people within the newly created Savannah Region.

Sulemana Yussif, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bole-Bamboi, expressed appreciation to the NEA for the facility saying one should not be a politician before he or she could help his community.

Nana Dr. David Mensah, the Director of NEA, said the facility would meet the highest quality and international standards that would provide excellent healthcare delivery particularly to the rural poor in the region.

“We assure you that on completion, poor sick people would not be denied quality healthcare services on the grounds of their inability to pay”, Nana Dr. Mensah, who is the Gyassehene of the Mo Traditional Area stated.

He said the project was being funded by donations from philanthropic individuals and organisations and appealed to all stakeholders in the area to support as well.
