Ahaji Alhassan Suleman, the Upper West Regional Minister, has said the 160-bed capacity new regional Hospital in Wa is 90 per cent complete and will be handed over in September 2018.

The new health facility located along the Wa-Kaleo road, has 700-metre covered walkway, four operation rooms for various surgeries is expected to be commissioned in October 2018 and start full operations by January 2019, according to the Minister.

The ultra-modern hospital also has mini market, physiotherapy unit, two buildings for administration, pharmacy and parking lot for 114 vehicles among others facilities and several sophisticated equipment.

Responding to a question by GNA about the status of the new facility during regional heads of department meeting in Wa Tuesday, Ahaji Suleman said: “Work on the Hospital is 90 per cent complete; we are hoping that it will be handed over in September and commissioned in October.”

“But after commissioning, there will be a fallow period of three months to train personnel on how to use some of the equipment, I understand they are very sophisticated,” he added.

“Ideally,” he added, the hospital would be ready for delivery of healthcare services in January 2019.
