Family Health Hospital (FHH) has donated locally produced Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (Ridge Hospital) to be used by front line health workers fighting the coronavirus.
The PPE were designed and produced by the Founder and President of the Family Health University College, Prof. Yao Kwawukume and Dr Susu Kwawukume, co-founder of the college and the Chief Medical Director of FHH.
In his recent address, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo implored the citizenry to come up with creative inventions that will help fight Covid-19 spread in Ghana.
He assured local manufacturing companies of his government’s readiness to assist in the domestic production of PPE.
In response to the call, the Family Health Hospital and Family Health University College produced the first set of PPE.
In a short address at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital during the presentation to the facility, Dr. Susu Kwawukume disclosed that the move by Family Health Hospital is also in line with the President’s directive for local industries to be innovative in producing locally made PPE’s to curtail COVID 19’s spread.
She pleaded with government to fulfill its promise to support local manufacturing companies in the large production of PPE which she believes will save the nation from spending too much on the importation of the PPE.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (Ridge), Dr Emmanuel Srofenyoh, in his acceptance speech, thanked the management of Family Health Hospital for their thoughtful gesture and commended them for coming up with such critical intervention during these trying times to also complement the government’s effort in fighting the spread of Covid-19.
The locally-made PPE by Family Health Hospital has been proven to be of high-quality standard and it is currently in use by health professionals at the Family Health Hospital maternity ward.
The made-in-Ghana PPE are reusable, washable and easy to decontaminate.
Family Health Hospital is a 24-hour private facility that provides comprehensive healthcare services to clients within its catchment area and beyond.
The hospital aims to be one of the leading providers of healthcare delivery and education in the country with its Medical School (the Premier Private Medical School), the Nursing and Midwifery Training Schools.
