Dr. Freda Prempeh, the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources and Member of Parliament for the area conducted an inspection of the ongoing construction of a three-million-cedis Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) Compound in Susuanho, the Tano North Municipality of the Ahafo Region.
The facility, funded by the government, is set to house modern medical equipment, as well as accommodation for doctors and nurses, aimed at improving healthcare services in the region.
During her inspection, Dr. Prempeh emphasized the importance of quality work and timely completion by the contractor, stating, “The inspection exercise was to push the contractor to deliver quality work and complete on time.”
She also reaffirmed her commitment to prioritizing healthcare delivery in the constituency, with plans to extend similar CHPS compounds to other deserving communities, ultimately enhancing the overall health status of the people.
Dr. Prempeh further noted her track record of funding, completing, furnishing, and handing over CHPS compounds to various communities in the area. Additionally, she highlighted efforts to equip health centers, clinics, and hospitals like the Bomaa Government Hospital and the Duayaw-Nkwanta St. John of God Catholic Hospital with modern medical devices and equipment.
Despite the absence of Mr. Peter Kyeremeh, the Managing Director of PETMAT Construction Works, during the visit, the construction progress was notably well underway.
Work on the wards had reached the roofing stage, while construction of the administration block and other facilities was proceeding steadily.
Dr. Prempeh expressed her satisfaction with the progress and expressed optimism that the project would be completed according to the scheduled timeline.
