Couple constructs Accident & Emergency Unit for Sefwi Wiawso Municipal Hospital

A philanthropist and businessman has handed over a newly constructed and well-furnished Accident and Emergency Unit to the management of the Sefwi Wiawso Municipal Government Hospital in the Western North Region.

The GH¢1.4 million emergency health care facility was solely funded by the Chief Executive Officer of Rayc of Group of Companies, Mr. Ramus Kwofie, and his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Kwofie.

The facility, according to the management, would serve the emergency health needs of residents of the newly created Western North Region and its immediate surroundings.

At a colourful inaugural ceremony last week Thursday, an elated Regional Health Director, Dr. Marion Okoh Owusu, noted that the facility now had a unit that would take care of the emergency health needs of people in the region.

The Director recounted the frustrations that health service managers at the Wiawso Municipal Government Hospital in particular, and the Western North Regional Health Directorate went through in the absence of the unit.

Dr. Marion Okoh Owusu expressed his profound gratitude to the couple for such a wonderful gesture, describing the project as a befitting monument that complimented the status of a Municipal Hospital.

The Health Director called on other well to do individuals, non-governmental organisations and corporate bodies to emulate the couple’s gesture by devoting resources to support and advance health delivery services in the Municipality, the region and the country at large.

Mr. and Mrs. Kwofie said they were touched upon seeing accident victims and patients in need of emergency healthcare service lying on hospital floors, verandas and benches during a visit to the facility.

The couple said they then resolved to put up a befitting structure as their little contribution to the welfare of the people of the Wiawso community and the country.

Mr. Kwofie entreated the general public to, within their capacities, see life beyond themselves and help make life better for others in society.
