The Ridge Hospital will soon become the Greater Accra regional hospital, President John Mahama has said.

This follows the progress of work done on the Ridge Hospital expansion project.

The Ridge Hospital project involves the design, construction, procurement and installation of equipment for the rehabilitation of the hospital.

The project is expected to be completed in 2016, and is being financed with a Government of Ghana mixed credit facility of US$250 million from Exim Bank and the HSBC Bank.

Speaking at the launch of the book, “Accounting To The People” at the Banquet Hall- State House in Accra, President Mahama said "We assume that Korlebu is Greater Accra Regional Hospital. No, Korlebu is a specialist hospital; it is not supposed to be handling ordinary cases."

The rehabilitation works of the Ridge hospital is expected to provide the hospital with ultra-modern facilities and a 420-bed capacity to improve quality and expand access to health care delivery, particularly to its immediate catchment area.

The president added that "work is ongoing on two teaching hospitals, four regional hospitals, 5 additional polyclinics have been completed."

He added that 1,200 CHIPS compound have been built across the length and breadth of the country.

The president said his administration has invested massively in the health sector in order to bring quality healthcare to the doorsteps of people.
