President John Mahama has commissioned an ultra modern Cathlab Machine at the Cardiothoracic Centre of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

The new machine, which was installed three months ago, replaces an old one that had outlived its usefulness after 29 years of installation and would help in the diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases.

The facility would diagnose and treat heart patients from the West African Sub-region and train more cardiology staff in the same region on the handling of the equipment and heart conditions.

After inspecting the installation at the centre, Mahama promised that he would take it as a special project to mobilise resources for the development of the centre even when he leaves office.

He said he was moved to acquire the equipment for the Centre when he once visited a minister of state who was admitted at the Centre, but had to be referred to a medical centre in the United Kingdom because the machine was not working.


President Mahama said his support to the Centre after leaving office would be focused on constructing a new cardiothoracic centre as the existing one was virtually becoming smaller for the growing number of heart patients in the country and beyond.
