Minister of Health Kwaku Agyeman-Manu has inaugurated the newly-constructed Accident & Emergency Centre at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

The newly inaugurated Accident & Emergency Centre centre at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital has 200 beds. 

Speaking at the inauguration, Minister of Health Kwaku Agyeman-Manu said, President Akufo-Addo's administration is committed to resourcing the health sector to ensure quality healthcare delivery.

Meanwhile, the new Board Chairman of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital Dr Bernard Okoe Boye in a recent interview said when the new facility when inaugurated will help reduce the pressure on the existing Accident & Emergency Centre at the hospital.

 “What we’re immediately going to do with the blessing of the minister is to quickly open the new Accident & Emergency Centre. The new one had remained unopened because of a few structural defects and all that but quickly, we’ve accessed an emergency fund, we’ve fixed it, and we’re just trying to get beds in place and arrangements in terms of power supply, electricity and oxygen and all that, so, Friday, the new Accident and Emergency Centre is opening with a bed capacity of more than 60 – twice the capacity of the old one.”
