Mr Simon Osei Mensah, the Ashanti Regional Minister, has said the government is almost through with securing funds to complete the stalled Mother and Baby Unit (MBU) of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).

The over 1,000 bed capacity facility, which was started by the General Kutu Acheampong’s government in the early 1970s, has become like a ‘shrine’, which had been visited by all successive governments, but none had been able to complete it to ease the perennial congestion, characterizing the maternity and baby wards of KATH.

“We anticipate that, in the next two months, we would have signed the agreement for everything to be clear to initiate the completion of the project”, the Minister promised, adding that, stalled projects of several other health facilities in the region would also see a facelift.

Mr Osei Mensah, who was speaking at the annual thanksgiving, staff reception and awards of KATH, said the completion of the project would ensure quality maternal healthcare delivery in the country.

The Minister expressed optimism that with team work, the nation’s second largest referral health facility is going to achieve a lot to underscore its hallmark as being a place of excellence.

Award winners of the facility took home certificates, plaques, electrical appliances such as, television sets, refrigerators, and tablets.

They were selected for being the best allied health officer, midwife, doctor specialist and consultant, pharmacist, nurse, health assistant among others.
