The Rotary Club of Kumasi-East has commenced processes to build an Intensive Care Unit to cater for COVID 19 and other related cases in the Ashanti Region.

The project, which is the flagship for the Club this Rotary year, will be established at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Hospital to support the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).

The eight-bed facility is expected to be completed by June, 2022.

Presently, the existing ICU in the Region has only eight beds serving the whole of the catchment area of KATH which is predominantly the Northern sector of the country.

The existing facility is overstretched, especially as some cases of COVID 19 continue to be recorded.

President of the Rotary Club of Kumasi-East, Nana Kofi Ayesu-Boahene explained that the Club is aiming at improving health facilities in the Region.

“Healthcare delivery is one of our areas of service for Rotary International and we are bent on making an impact in the country”, he said.

Already, the club has made various investments in other areas of healthcare delivery.

For instance, the Rotary Club of Kumasi-East, Ghana as “Host Sponsor” and Rotary Club of Beilefeld-Waldhof, Germany, have donated equipment and training support worth 87 thousand dollars to help the establishment of Methodist Oral Health School Complex at Ankaase in the Ashanti Region.

It is expected to train experts in the field and also cater for the oral need of persons in the catchment area.

The equipment included seven dental units, x-ray unit as well as classroom and office furniture.

An ambulance valued at 150 thousand cedis was donated to the Yeji Government Hospital with some funding support from Rotary Club of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The donation has so far helped ease the transportation of emergency cases since it was received in June this year.
