“We are grateful to the management of this facility for hosting us and we want to assure them that for the next two years our concentration will be on this hospital and whenever we want to have any event, they will be our first point of call,” he added.
The Acting Medical Superintendent of the hospital Dr. Cardinal Newton who was delighted by the gesture from the Ghana Tourism Authority called on other institutions to also consider the hospital when taking up projects as part of their corporate social responsibilities.
