President John Dramani Mahama has said that his government will be building more district hospitals in order to bring healthcare to the doorsteps of people.

The President made this known at the commissioning of the new 120-bed district hospital at the Shai Osudoku in the Greater Accra region.

According to him, the increasing number of the population in the country requires the expansion of health facilities to "accommodate the increase in population."

"That is why we are pressing on with the district hospitals project in order that we can bring quality healthcare to the people's doorsteps.

“The completion of the Shai Osudoku hospital reflects an unwavering commitment to my 2012 social contract with the people of Ghana to expand access to quality healthcare across the length and breadth of our dear country Ghana,” he said.

The president added that areas such as Sawla Kalba, Somanya, Buipe, and Torlon will soon be provided with district hospitals.

The on-going construction of the districts in Fomena and Kumewu, he said, are expected to be completed by October, 2016.

He added that the ones in Garu-Tempane and Abertifi would be completed in the early part of 2017.

The president showed appreciation to the team that worked on the Shai Osudoku hospital for being able to put up one of the first district hospitals to be completed this year.

Some of the workers on the project were rewarded for their hard work.

The president also advised community members to adopt a good maintenance culture to properly manage the facilities at the hospital.
