The new Greater Accra Regional Hospital will be fully operational Monday, May, 22, 2017, according to management of the facility.

Authorities have thus denied claims that the hospital was closed down two days after it was opened to the public.

Reports say the brisk activities witnessed at the facility 72 hrs ago is non-existent as patients who visited the refurbished health facility Friday were turned away.

No official reason was assigned for the closure, on Friday.

However, responding to the reports of closure of the facility, the new Head, Dr Emmanuel Srofenyo said there are various processes that must be completed before the facility can begin to receive patients and provide treatment.

“To move there fully and physically, we have to follow a plan, and we’ve finished completing the plan. And from Monday we’ll be physically present in the facility.” he told Accra-based Joy FM in an interview.

There have been tension at the hospital following a formal introduction of the new Hospital Head.

This is despite the outgoing Chief Executive of the Hospital, Dr. Thomas Anaba’s resistance to his transfer which has for the past week generated an administrative war between him and the Health Ministry.

The 420-bed facility was financed by the government of Ghana with a credit facility from Exim Bank and HSBC Bank of the United States of America (USA).

Some of the facilities of the hospital are a diagnostic and treatment block with a 24-hour surgery unit, an imaging department, a maternity centre, a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), an intensive care unit (ICU), an emergency ICU and a burns unit.
