Work on many Agenda 111 facilities across the country have stalled, including the project in Adeiso.
More than a year after contractors received $1.3 million to mobilise and start construction in the Upper West Akim district of the Eastern Region, the site remains bare.
The site is undeveloped and filled with rocks and weeds.
The Minority in Parliament is touring some of the Agenda 111 sites to expose what they say is a deception by government.
Ranking Member on the Health Committee, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh said, “it is reported here that the contractor came to the site around the 31st January, 2022.”
“So it was our expectation that when we got here, much progress would have been made but unfortunately, what we see here is not the case,” he told journalists on Wednesday.
The MP insisted that government has no plans to complete the hospitals.
President Akufo-Addo on August 17, 2021, launched the Agenda 111 project.
The project will cover the design, procurement, construction, equipping and commissioning of 101 district hospitals, 6 regional hospitals in newly created regions, and 1 regional hospital in the Western Region, 2 psychiatric hospitals in Kumasi and Tamale, a redeveloped Accra Psychiatric Hospital.
The project is to ensure that Ghanaians nationwide have access to quality healthcare services and with the National Health Insurance Scheme, boost the provision of healthcare infrastructure and financial accessibility to healthcare.
Doctors, nurses and other health personnel will have accommodations in the hospitals to be constructed.
According to the Agenda 111 detailed document, the facilities that will be enjoyed by Ghanaians include; four state-of-the-art surgical theatres for maternity, obstetrics and gynaecology, a full complement of male, female, pediatric and isolation wards, among others.
