Patients at the Peki Government Hospital will heave a huge sigh of relief after hospital authorities took delivery of mattresses donated through acts of philanthropy.

At least, two institutions, Team Diamond of the Max international, Peki Union UK and a couple, Mr and Mrs Balasu came to the rescue of the hospital with the donation of the customized mattresses worth 40,000 cedis.

The donation came after a passionate appeal by the health authorities at the hospital who had become increasingly frustrated by the poor sleeping conditions in the hospital.

In an interview with Joy News, the medical superintendent of the hospital, Dr Alphonse Dzakpasu, said “our mattresses had worn out,  a situation which is not good enough for the hospital and for the comfort of the patients," he lamented

Dr Alphonse Dzakpasu disclosed that the situation became a worry to the management looking at the increasing number of patients admitted daily for health care

He was therefore excited when help finally came in the form of donation.

Dr Dzakpasu called on stakeholders and well-meaning citizens as well as companies to come to the aid of the hospital by providing more mattresses and other pressing needs of the hospital for a more quality health delivery.

“We need such donations to the hospital by groups and individuals,” Dr. Alphonse Dzakpasu pleaded

The National president of the Peki Union, Bernard Douse in presenting the items called on the Health Ministry to upgrade the hospital as it is the only government hospital between Accra and Hohoe and on the stretch of the eastern corridor road.

Peki Government hospital is a district hospital situated in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region and is considered to be one of the cleanest hospitals in the region but lacking some of the basic amenities to function properly.
