Teshie-Camp Methodist/Presbyterian Church Donates To Family Health Hospital

…As an appreciation for professional Care to Residents

The Teshie Camp Methodist-Presbyterian Church, in appreciation of the quality health care services offered by the Family Health Hospital to its members and the Teshie community in general, has donated a Polytank to the hospital.

Senior Chaplains Very Rev. Lt. Cdr. David Quayson and Rev. Michael Addo Nyinaku, who led the Church to make the donation were welcomed to the hospital by the Chief Medical Director of Family Health Hospital, Dr Susu B. Kwawukume.
Also present was the Administrator of the Family Health Hospital, Mrs Cynthia Ampadu-Brenya.

Making the donation, Very Rev. Lt. Cdr. David Quayson said Family Health Hospital had over the years been the first point of call for members of the Church who fell ill.

He revealed that the Church had benefited tremendously from the quality healthcare services provided at the Family Health Hospital and that they were grateful to the Management.

The Church, in addition to the donation, embarked on a clean-up exercise at the Family Health University College.

The Medical Director of Family Health Hospital, Dr Susu B. Kwawukume, in her address on behalf of Management of the Hospital and the University College, expressed her gratitude to the Church for the kind gesture.

She thanked the leadership and the entire members of the Church for their prayers and support and assured them that the hospital will continue to serve them even better.

The Family Health Hospital, apart from providing excellent and quality healthcare, also serves as a training and attachment centre for both medical and nursing students of the Family Health University College.

The Family Health Hospital would soon introduce a Dialysis Machine to filter a patient’s blood to remove excess water and waste products when the kidneys are damaged, dysfunctional, or missing.

The Hospital has embarked on massive infrastructural expansion work at its Eye, Dental and Dialysis centres for improved patient care.

The expansion work also comprises an enhanced Paedriatic Unit that would take in more children; a larger Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and more Consulting Rooms for Specialists.

The Emergency Unit has been enhanced to accommodate more male and female patients.
The hospital has also acquired Heart-Lung equipment which will soon be used for open-heart surgeries.

Meanwhile, Management of the Premier Private Medical School led by its President, Prof. E. Y. Kwawukume, as part of its social responsibilities, has taken measures to launch an Endowment Fund next year March 2020, to provide financial support for the needy, but brilliant Ghanaian students from both rural and urban areas, who have the desire to be trained as medical doctors.

The Fund shall constitute gifts, grants, donations, and bequests, as may be given by a corporate body, a group of persons, or an individual. Any person may contribute, or devise money, or other personal, or real property to the Fund; and to ensure its success, contributions towards the Fund shall be administered and managed by a Board of Trustees.

The long-term benefits of the Endowment Fund will ensure the continued support of a diverse group of students from a low-income background within the country; help to make medical training accessible to more Ghanaian students; and increase the doctor-patient ratio in the nation to an acceptable level.

The beneficiaries of the fund will also include students who on the inception of the medical programme, were capable of paying their fees, but due to sudden challenges such as, the demise or poor health of their main sponsor, among others are incapable of paying the remaining fee.

Family Health Medical School is Ghana’s Premier Private Medical school with a hospital, modern facilities, spacious laboratories and lecture halls.
