Sekondi, September 15,  GNA – The Medical Director for the
Effia-Nkwanta Regional hospital, Takoradi, Mr. Joseph Tambil at the weekend
inaugurated a GH¢40,000 wellness centre at the hospital.

The facility, funded from Internally
Generated Fund of the hospital, is a requirement by the Ghana Health Service
for all hospitals in the country to have at their facilities.

Mr Tambil said the centre was a walk-in
facility where individuals could walk in and have very minor checks such as
blood pressure, blood group, weight, height, nutrition and general health
concerns as well as counselling sessions without having to queue in order to
see a doctor.

The Medical Director said for now, there was
no cost for services provided but in the near future, it would be required
following provision of services such as laboratory and other medical tests.

He appealed to companies and individuals to
adopt the facility and partner with the hospital to help it recoup some of the
cost incurred.
