Former president John Rawlings has said that he hopes the newly built Greater Accra Regional Hospital, formerly Ridge Hospital, is maintained properly.

Former President Rawlings said this will ensure that the hospital serves the general public for a longer period of time.

“I guess we are all feeling quite proud. This is a good job and I hope we maintain it to give it a long lifespan. I am hoping that the operators – the doctors, the staff and the [patients] – will conduct themselves in a manner that will preserve the sanctity of this place. The hygienic condition especially is looking so beautiful, so new, and so clean.”

In 2013, the work on the refurbishment of the Ridge Hospital began for it to be branded as the Greater Accra Regional Hospital.

Ridge Hospital, one of the leading hospitals in the capital, has undergone expansion in many of its departments, including Imaging, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Accident and Emergency, Neonatal Intensive Care, Burns, Pharmacy and Laboratory.

The refurbished hospital has now been expanded from a 200 to 420-bed capacity hospital, particularly for  its immediate catchment area.
