He indicated that the mortuary, which has existed since the inception of the Hospital, has been closed down for the past 6 months and has outlived its usefulness and appealed to the delegation to carry their request forward to the President for redress.

Dr Nindow said that “currently, as we speak, our mortuary is down completely, and it’s a very key challenge to the district. In the region, we have three main hospitals, here, Damongo and Salaga, and this mortuary serves most of the areas.”
