Management of the Battor Catholic Hospital in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region took delivery of some vital medical equipment following a response to their appeal to the Member of Parliament for the area, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
It was all joy and relief for staff and patients of the hospital upon receipt of medical equipment; ranging from two sets of baby incubators, a suction machine, a phototherapy machine, an operating theatre bed, five sets of oxygen flow meters, an autoclave machine, baby cots and sets of bedsheets.
The intervention, the hospital administration said would go a long way to improve quality of health delivery in the district and other adjoining districts that benefits from the facility.
In an interview with the MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, he said his pledge to bring some relief to the hospital is crucial to the well-being of his constituents especially expectant and nursing mothers, and their children.
He said the equipment procured so far is worth over one hundred thousand Ghana cedis(GHC 100,000) with an ambulance yet to be delivered.
Donating the equipment to the beneficiaries, the MP asked that they maintain them properly to serve the hospital for a long time.
Some patients at the Hospital thanked the Member of Parliament for the gesture.
