Hon. MCE poised to promote quality healthcare.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Kwahu West Municipal Assembly, Hon. Yaw Owusu Addo, has informed the Media that as part of his development agenda, he is poised to build more Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compounds, health centres and clinics to enhance access to quality health care.
He made this known when the Assembly received a 10-acre plot of land from the Obemenghene, Nana Effah Pinaman, for the construction of a health facility for the people of Kwahu West Municipality and other catchment areas.
The Hon. MCE expressed his elation and utmost gratitude to the Obemenghene for giving out the land and said the objective was to bring healthcare closer to his constituents especially children and pregnant women so that they would not travel long distances to receive medical attention.
Thanking the Omanhene for the kind gesture, the MCE reiterated that the congestion at Municipal Health Office was not the best and added that there was an urgent need to create more space, provide some comfort and convenience for the health workers. He, therefore, assured all present that Assembly will construct a new office for the Municipal Health Directorate to remedy the situation.
