The Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Accra, Mohammed Adjei Sowah has expressed satisfaction about the progress of work on the Kaneshie Polyclinic expansion project.
According to him despite the holdup in the execution of the project, work was 75 per cent complete and would be fully handed over for use by the end of March 2021.
The AMA boss made this known on Wednesday, 24 February 2021, after an inspection of the ongoing expansion project at the Kaneshie Polyclinic.
He was hopeful that the project when completed would address the increasing demand by patients due to population growth in the catchment area.
He said the two-storey project which would serve as a maternity block consists of a theatre, consulting and changing rooms, a dental unit, an ultrasound scanning room, washrooms among other facilities.
He urged the contractor to expedite work on the project since it would reduce the growing health demands at the polyclinic.
The Kaneshie polyclinic constructed by the Swedish government in 1966, is Ghana’s oldest polyclinic and provides medical services for residents in and around Kaneshie, Bubiashie, Awudome, Avenor, Fadama, Kwame Nkrumah Circle among others.
