Ayinase Health Centre To Be Upgraded
Mrs Lordina Mahama
The Ayinase Health Centre in the Ellembele District of the Western Region is to be upgraded to a polyclinic status and resourced to deliver quality healthcare to all in the area.
This was disclosed when Mrs Lordina Mahama on behalf of the Lordina Foundation visited the area and donated medical supplies and equipment to the Ellembele District Health Directorate for onward distribution to health facilities in the district.
It was her first official visit to the Ellembele District of the Western Region.
With a passion to help promote good health for all, Mrs Mahama through the Lordina Foundation is on a mission to promote women and children’s health, and to resource health facilities in the country with medical equipment that would help promote quality healthcare delivery.
At Ayinase, Mrs Mahama presented cartons of assorted hospital supplies and equipment to the Ellembele District Health Directorate for the benefit of the Ayinase Health Centre as well as other health facilities in the district.
The Ellembele District Health Director, Madam Elizabeth Conney; the MP of the area, Emmanuel Kofi Buah; the District Chief Executive, Daniel Eshun, other executives and the chiefs and people in the area were appreciative of Mrs Mahama’s gesture.
The First Lady said the Lordina Foundation believes that good health is important in increasing labour and productivity for the growth of the economy, hence the foundation’s resolve to work and promote health, especially that of women and children.
The hospital was built by the then chief, Nana Heman, in 1972 and handed over to the Ghana Health Service in 1985.
On average, about 100 patients patronise the out- patients department (OPD), while some 150 or more pass through on Tuesdays when various clinics are run for specialised cases such as diabetes and anti-natal care.
The Omahene of Lower Dixcove, Nana Akwesi Agyeman IX, and the MP for the area commended Mrs Mahama for choosing Ahanta West District out of 23 districts in the Western Region as beneficiaries of her benevolence.
