KATH Management Members Tour Estate Facilities…As CEO Hints Of Robust Maintenance Measures.

Management Members at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital 🏥 (KATH) last Thursday visited the facility’s estate and residential properties located outside the hospital premises to assess the state they are in.

The facilities toured were the Child Welfare Clinic (CWC), Asuyeboa flats, Ampabaame and Bantama residential properties.

The initiative, a rare one, was led by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Professor Otchere Addai-Mensah who told this reporter that the tour was meant to give the Management members a fair idea of the conditions of the estates of KATH.

“This tour was discussed at Management meeting and today we decided to make time and visit our estates and properties to ascertain their conditions for ourselves”, the CEO stated.

Professor Addai-Mensah noted that the conditions they found the estates were not satisfactory at all.

He noted that some of the residential places had been taken over by squatters, with some lying in ruins and posing danger to humans.

He wondered why such human habitations could be allowed to rot and deteriorate to the level they found them.

“The conditions at the sites visited were bad and they were begging for maintenence as well as other remedial measures”, the CEO stated.

The CEO said management plans to adopt a phased approach to repair the damage seen at the sites

He noted that a robust maintenance plan would be also be drawn to ensure they are followed through periodically.

This, he noted would enable KATH to keep its external facilities in good shape and make them fit for purpose as well as for human habitation.

“Ampabaame and Bantama offer opportunities for the development of accommodation units through partnerships with private groups and individuals”, the Prof Addai-Mensah disclosed.
