The Builsa North Municipal Chief Executive, Madam Vida Akantagriwen Anaab, has called on health stakeholders and concerned parties to rally behind efforts to renovate and restore the ailing municipal hospital.
Describing the hospital as a “death trap” and a significant threat to the well-being of patients and healthcare providers, Madam Anaab urged all stakeholders to unite for the hospital’s revitalization.
Madam Anaab sounded the alarm during a Regional Coordinating Council meeting held in Bolgatanga.
According to Madam Anaab, the hospital’s roofing sheets leak incessantly whenever it rains, causing untold damage to equipment and posing a severe risk to patient safety.
“…the walls of the hospital building are riddled with cracks, raising fears of potential structural failures that could result in catastrophic accidents.
“The current state of the hospital is deplorable and unacceptable. It not only endangers the lives of our patients but also the dedicated healthcare workers who serve our community tirelessly,” she added.
She pointed out that the hospital has been a cornerstone of healthcare in the municipality for decades, providing essential medical services to thousands of residents.
Its current state, she said, jeopardizes the healthcare system’s ability to effectively address the growing medical needs of the community.
Therefore, she called on both governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as the private sector, to contribute to the renovation and modernization of the hospital.
