The Atomic-Haatso Community Hospital is one of the 6 district hospitals under the key term projects embarked upon by the government.
The 37-acre site has been handed over to Herojet Contractors from Egypt, with work expected to be completed within two years.
The new Atomic hospital will contain 100 beds, Department of Ear, Throat and Nose, a mortuary, and staff accommodation for health workers.
According to Prof. Edward Akaho, Director-General of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission, the hospital would serve as a research center for students of the Nuclear and Allied Sciences of the University of Ghana.
He therefore, gave the assurance that the site, on which the hospital is located, is within the radius of the commission, so it would be monitored properly.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Ga East Municipal Assembly, Mr. John K. Sackey, also added that the hospital, when built, would serve as a referral center, which will promote health in the municipality.
He further urged all workers who are yet to work in the hospital, when it starts operations, to endevour to make good use of the equipment, and keep them well.
