Commencement of the project

The project broke grounds with the construction of Mim Community Hospital which upon completion will have an outpatient department and a public health wing, a surgical suite consisting of a theatre, recovery ward, and a sterilization unit, a delivery unit, and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), a laboratory, pharmacy and x-ray, thirty (30)-bed ward for males, females and pediatrics, services block containing the laundry, stores, and a cold room, and staff accommodation.

Speaking during the sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of the Mim Community Hospital, the President of the West African Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo explained that the aim of the construction of these hospitals is to guarantee access to healthcare for all Ghanaians, through improving existing healthcare facilities, and constructing new ones in places where none exist in the country.

“The commencement of these projects serves as further evidence of Government’s commitment to achieving the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and Universal Health Coverage for all Ghanaians,” said the Akufo-Addo.
