Government has finally commissioned the 80-bed Kasoa Polyclinic which had been neglected for years.
The polyclinic which is located at Crespo City at Kasoa CP in the Awutu Senya East Constituency (ASEC) boasts of a pharmacy, an OPD and will serve the first point of call for residents of the populated Central Regional town.
Calls for the commissioning of the facility intensified after the Member of Parliament (MP) for Awutu Senya West who was on a tour in the constituency had to be flown to 37 Hospital for emergency treatment following an accident.
Government had defended that plans were in place to ensure that the facility becomes operational to ensure that residents are provided with the best of healthcare.
And government finally materialised its pledge on Tuesday at a durbur held to officially commission the health facility.
The Minister for Special Development Initiative who also doubles as the MP for Awutu Senya East, Mavis Hawa Koomson while making a donation to the facility mentioned that the health facility will now become operational.
The MP further debunked allegations that the Akufo-Addo government have neglected the project adding that she procured the equipment for the initial operations of the polyclinic.
Equipment donated to the facility included 20 court children mattresses, two wheel chairs, three adult beds, 10 delivery beds, two delivery sets, four laptops, three oxygen flow meter among others.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Awutu Senya East, Michael Mensah also added that, the hospital was completely built by the NPP government and furnished with streets lights among others to enable it function properly.
He said the hospital cannot be put to use when the there are no equipment.
He hinted that these equipment were just a tip of the iceberg as according to him, there will be more to come in the coming days.
