North Tongu district gets modern surgical theatre

The facility is built at the St. Anne Polyclinic and was championed by the MP for the area, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa with support from local and diaspora donors

Residents of Tagadzi, a farming community in the North Tongu District now have access to a modern surgical theatre in the area.

The facility is built at the St. Anne Polyclinic and was championed by the MP for the area, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa with support from local and diaspora donors.

The facility was named after the late President, John Evans Atta Mills.

According to Ablakwa, the late Atta Mills inspired construction of the theatre before his demise hence the decision to name it after him.

The MP thanked all stakeholders who supported him including his wife who donated hospital bedsheets and surgical gowns, as well as traditional leaders who have played roles in the realisation of the theatre.

The block was commissioned by Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman on Tuesday (18 October 2022). She eulogised the late Atta Mills for his contribution in providing quality and affordable healthcare to Ghanaians before his departure.

The acting Volta Regional Health Director, Dr Senanu Dzokoto also at the event charged the community and staff at the facility to adopt good maintenance of the theatre.

For him, the struggle to have access to healthcare in the area will be the thing of the past.

Traditional authorities, Dorfor Traditional Area thanked the MP and his partners for the gesture and promised to continue to give the needed support to the polyclinc and the MP.

Many farming communities in the Dorfor traditional enclave will no longer have to travel to Ho for surgical services.
