The administrator of Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, Mr. Michael Danso, recognized the role management played in the project’s realization at the sod-cutting event on Wednesday and said, “It’s extremely near to our hearts.” 

He thought back to prior union attempts to construct the office in the local Communicable Diseases Unit (CDU). But management insisted on the transfer. 

“In order to provide you with a better land, we, therefore, made the decision to choose this location. This project has all of us enthusiastic, and we hope that it will move quickly so that we may all benefit,” Mr. Danso remarked.

And the health sector despite the difficulties associated with finding adequate land space. 

He added, “Today has been a crucial day in the Union’s history. Despite the fact that we have been a union for the entire time, we have always operated in rented spaces. However, thanks to the assistance of the regional director of health services at Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, we now have this plot of land on which to build the office complex. We would like to think that in 24 months we should be able to finish it.”
